Pattern Energy Plans to Buy 43 Megawatts of Canada Wind Capacity

Pattern Energy Group Inc., which has a stake in almost 2 gigawatts of wind-power capacity, plans to add 43 megawatts to that from a project in Canada.

The company “expects to acquire” a portion of the North Kent wind farm in Chatham-Kent, Ontario, the San Francisco-based company said in a statement Tuesday. Financial terms weren’t disclosed.

The 100-megawatt North Kent project, which Pattern Energy is jointly developing with Samsung C&T Corp., has a 20-year agreement to sell power to Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator. The wind farm is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
