New Brunswick, Manitoba and Quebec data exclude electricity exports from the Province. 
               New Brunswick added no new wind in 2015: the Y-o-Y increase is due to Point LaPreu nuclear being down for maintenance (hence wind was a higher portion of total generation).


No  words required for Prince Edward Island which is a clear leader. Particularly impressive is Nova Scotia which is rapidly transitioning from coal which provided 80 percent of electricity until only a few years ago. New Brunswick shows an uptick however that is due not to an increase in wind but rather because their major nuclear power station was down for refurbishment.

The major laggards on the wind front are Manitoba, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Newfoundland & Labrador. However it is hard to criticize Manitoba and British Columbia since almost 100 percent of their electricity is from emission-free sources (hydro-electric). In addition to which Newfoundland & Labrador is well underway with the massive Lower Churchill hydro project.



A word on the data: StatCan does provide timely data on electricity generation by province however the accuracy is questionable.

Specifically: annual StatCan data for 2014 shows that total generation from wind was 11.3 terawatt hours (TWh). This is questionable because four provinces with only 55 percent of total Canadian installed capacity at the end of 2014 (Ontario, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan) together reported a total electricity generation from wind of 11.9 TWh.   StatCan reports 2015 wind production actually fell to 8.8 TWh which is clearly an error since the installed wind capacity grew 16 percent from 2014 to 2015. 

Consequently and to compile the above graph, we sourced the Canada-level data from the BP 2016 Statistical Review of World Energy. For the individual provinces we had to look at the Annual Reports of utilities or system operators in the each of the provinces. In some instances the entities concerned provided specific information on generation from wind turbines (Nova Scotia, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta) and in other instances not (Newfoundland & Labrador, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Quebec and British Columbia). Where the data was not available - we had to make assumptions about the amounts generated given the known installed wind capacities and estimated capacity factors. 

In other words: our graph is not intended to be definitive but it at least provides some idea of wind implementation across the country.
