Where is Your Energy Coming From?

There’s a lot of work that goes into powering our communities each day! It’s our job to make sure that electricity is always there when you need it, and that means making sure we’re generating the right amount of power to match demand throughout the day. The weather plays an important role in deciding where your electricity comes from. On a blustery day, as much as 50% of your electricity could be generated by wind.

30 Days of Wind Generation

Wind power is the largest contributor to renewable energy in our province—but because it’s an intermittent source of energy, we can’t always count on it. Today we generate electricity from wind in real-time when the weather conditions are right. In the future, technology like battery storage will allow us to store excess generation from wind, enabling us to bring more of this important renewable energy resource to the grid.
