Canadian First Nation Tribe to Build Wind Park

In partnership with Ventus Energy, the Canadian First Nation Chisasibi band of Cree Indians hope to build Canada's largest wind park. The $3,000,000,000 project will involve 1,100 windmills that would generate 1,650 megawatts from wind power. The project, named Yudinn Energy Limited Partnership, has filed an application to export up to 204 megawatts, or 1.7 terawatt hours, of electricity to the United States. The windmills will be built on a 500-kilometre-long corridor along La Grande River and the Laforge/Brisay area in the province of Quebec. However, the plans must be approved by both the Canadian federal and Quebec governments.
