1. Oldman Phase One Wind Power Project
Phase One of the Oldman Project consists of two Vestas V80 turbines with an installed capacity of 3.6 MW. The two turbines have been in operation since March 2007.
Interconnection of the project is through the Fortis Alberta distribution grid. Capacity factors for the project have been in the high 30% range since the beginning of operation.

2. Oldman Phase Two Wind Power Project
The 46 MW Oldman Phase Two project will be constructed on 1600 (648 Hectares) of private farmland currently under lease. The Company expects to proceed with the construction of the project in 2010, to be commercially operational in mid-2011 when grid connection becomes available.
Wind tests on the site were commenced on February 1, 2004 and are ongoing. Wind study results to date confirm a potential net capacity factor for the site in the mid to upper 30% range. Low production months are May to September, with highest production from September to March. Strongest daily average wind volumes are during the day, approximately 10 A.M. to 10 P.M.
The Oldman River Phase Two project is being developed with our joint venture partner, Mainstream Renewable Power.
3. Windy Point Project
The 62 MW Windy Point project will be constructed on a contiguous 2240 acres of private farmland currently under lease. This project is located immediately north of the Oldman Phase Two Project site. Wind testing on the site commenced January, 2006 and to date, wind capacities have shown to be better than the Oldman River project.
The construction of the project could commence as early as 2011, with construction completed by 2012. The Windy Point project is being developed with our joint venture partner, Mainstream Renewable Power.
4. Waterton Colony Project
The Wateron Colony Project consists of 6000 Acres (2428 Hectares) of privately owned farmland leased in 2005. This greenfield development has two meteorological test towers on the site since March 2006.
The project is located 32 Kilometers south east of the Oldman Project and will be developed with our joint venture partner, Mainstream Renewable Power.
This project may support a several hundred mega-watt wind park, to be built in the 2013-2014 timeframe, when suitable transmission infrastructure is completed in this area of the province.
5. Cardston Project
The Cardston Project consists of privately owned farmland leased in 2009. Meteorological testing of the site began in early 2010.
This project will be developed with our joint venture partner, Mainstream Renewable Power.
It is expected this project may support up to a 150 MW wind park to be built in the 2013-2014 timeframe, once suitable transmission infrastructure is completed in this area of the province.
