The funding is to come in the form of a loan from Investissement Quebec. The project itself is expected to cost around C$176million and is due to be completed in the third quarter of 2011.
Northland has a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Hydro-Quebec in place for the project.
The PPA was signed in 2004 as part of a move by Hydro-Quebec to supply 990MW of wind power with eight wind projects. The projects were split between RES and Northland.
All of the projects are using GE turbines.
