On March 31, 2010, Enbridge Inc. and Renewable Energy Systems Canada Inc. (RES Canada), an affiliate of RES Americas, entered into an agreement to construct and own a 99-megawatt (MW) wind energy project on the northern shore of Lake Superior, in Ontario, in which Enbridge has a majority interest. The project - called the Greenwich Wind Energy Project - is a limited partnership that is jointly owned by Enbridge and RES Canada. RES Canada constructed the project under contract to the partnership. Investment in the project by both parties was approximately C$275 million.

The Greenwich Wind Energy Project, reached substantial completion in late 2011 and produces enough clean wind energy to power 33,000 average Canadian homes. It comprises 43 Siemens SWT-2.3-101 MW wind turbines and, under the terms of the agreement, was constructed by RES Canada under a fixed price, turnkey, engineering, procurement and construction agreement. Siemens provided operations and maintenance services for the wind turbines under a five-year, fixed-price agreement. The project delivers energy to the Ontario Power Authority under a Renewable Energy Supply (RES) III 20-year power purchase agreement.
