The St. Joseph wind project, located in Southern Manitoba in the vicinity of the town of St. Joseph, was developed and financed by the BowArk team. This 60 turbine, 138MW project was submitted in response to Manitoba Hydro’s 2007 Request for Proposal for wind energy projects and began delivering green energy to the Manitoba grid in 2011.

BowArk commenced community engagement activities in 2005 signing long term agreements with landowners and working with the Rural
Municipalities of Montcalm and Rhineland. The team at BowArk erected wind measurement masts to study the wind, and conducted all environmental baseline and impact studies to obtain provincial approval for the wind project. BowArk lead the design and engineering estimate with wind construction experts, Mortenson, and assisted in financing due diligence activities with our Partner, Pattern Energy. BowArk obtained federal funding through the EcoEnergy wind power incentive to provide $0.01/kWh. During construction, BowArk provided construction support to Pattern Energy to build the wind project in less than 8 months. Pattern Energy now owns and operates the St. Joseph Wind Energy Project.
