The Providence Bay Wind Farm is an operating 1.6 MW wind farm located near the towns of Providence Bay and Spring Bay, in the Township of Central Manitoulin, Manitoulin Island Ontario. Two Enercon E-48 800 kW wind turbine generators were commissioned and put into operation at Providence Bay on March 25, 2007. The related Providence Bay Expansion Project is in the Advanced-Stage of development.
The Providence Bay Wind Farm and the Providence Bay Expansion Project are, together, expected to have the development potential for an installed capacity of up to 8.1 MW. Schneider Power Providence Bay Inc. entered into two 20-year PPAs on May 19, 2006 and October 30, 2006, respectively with Bullfrog providing for the purchase by Bullfrog of a total of 1.6 MW wind power capacity.
The Providence Bay Wind Farm is owned and operated by Schneider Power Providence Bay Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Schneider Power Inc.
