The Dokie Wind project near Chetwynd is now complete and generating electricity.

The wind farm was a joint project between Plutonic Power Corporation and GE Energy Financial Services. The companies have jointly announced that the wind farm realized commercial operations on Feb. 16.

The project will be able to provide power to approximately 34,000 homes, Plutonic said in a press release.
