Abstract

This paper presents an economical valuation for wind energy projects according to the Ontario's feed-in tariff, the Standard Offer Program (SOP). The study is done for different wind turbines and different wind speed scenarios. Given turbine and wind speed data, the Capacity Factor (CF) of each turbine at each site was calculated. Net Present Value (NPV) and Internal Rate of Return (IRR) for different scenarios were calculated.
