SkyPower, Beardy’s and Okemasis to Develop Willow Cree Wind Project
The Beardy's and Okemasis First Nation community and SkyPower, a Lehman Brothers company, have entered into an agreement to develop the Willow Cree wind project in Canada.
The partners' proposed plan includes developing a 100MW wind park in Big Quill, a rural municipality near Wynyard, Saskatchewan.
Kerry Adler, president and CEO of SkyPower, said: "SkyPower is excited to have formed a partnership with Beardy's and Okemasis First Nation. As SkyPower has demonstrated over the last five years, working with First Nations and local communities not only provides clean energy results, but also establishes more economic benefits directly in the region."
