Canada's existing grid could accommodate 35 per cent wind

Wind could provide more than one-third of Canada's electrical power without destabilizing electricity grids or requiring new long-distance transmission lines, a new study says. And wind in Canada is so evenly distributed around the country, "there is little incentive to 'concentrate' [turbines] in provinces with marginally better resources, when wind resources of almost equal quality are located closer to the provincial load centres," the study finds.
