EDF EN Canada signed the agreement with the McLeod Lake Indian Band (MLIB) to develop the projects in the Peace River region of British Columbia, western Canada.

The three projects included in the MoU are the 250MW Sundance, the 250MW-400MW Taylor Wind and the 70.5MW Wartenbe.

Sundance and Taylor Wind are currently undergoing environmental assessments but are due to be commissioned in 2017. EDF EN Canada said the Wartenbe project is construction ready, having already received the necessary permits.

McLeod Lake Indian Bank is a First Nation group of indigenous peoples with a long history in British Columbia. In 2013, EDF EN Canada signed a protocol agreement with another native group, West Moberly First Nation for the three wind projects.
