The Dokie 1 wind project is located approximately 40 km west of Chetwynd, British Columbia, and was placed into operation in 2011.
The project consists of 48 – 3.0MW Vestas V90 turbines connected with overhead collection lines to a central switchyard. A 7.0 km long 230 kV transmission line transmits the electricity from the switchyard to the BC Hydro point of interconnection. All of the power generated by the Dokie 1 project is covered by a 25 year power purchase agreement (PPA) signed with BC Hydro, which started at commercial operation and expires in 2036.
Vestas-Canadian Wind Technology Inc. performs the service and maintenance on the Dokie Wind project under a long term service and maintenance agreement (15 years ending 2031, with an option for 5 year extension).
The Dokie 1 Wind project has been granted ECOLOGO certification and Dokie General Partnership is eligible for the federal government’s ecoENERGY initiative, intended to support renewable energy in Canada.
Innergex owns a 25.5% interest in the wind farm and Axium Infrastructure owns the remaining 74.5%.
