Going green: Turbine prices dropped substantially due to increased competition

Canada is well suited for generating wind-powered electricity, given that it has large tracts of land and abundant wind resources. Consequently, installed wind power capacity in Canada has grown over the five years to 2019, due to federal and provincial government incentives designed to reduce greenhouse gases and promote clean energy. These incentives include tax deductions, feed-in tariffs and governmental guarantees to purchase wind electricity. However, the Canadian Wind Turbine Manufacturing industry contracted over the five years to 2019. The Wind Turbine Manufacturing industry in Canada is expected to increase over the five years to 2024...read more.
