Ontario Municipal Board and Ministry of Environment Clear the Way for Construction of Enbridge Wind Power Project
Construction to begin this summer, completion expected at the end of 2008

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 20, 2007) - The Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment have removed the final hurdles for construction of Enbridge's (TSX:ENB) (NYSE:ENB) wind power project in Bruce County. The project is expected to produce 182 MW of electricity and, on completion, be one of the largest wind power projects in Canada.

The OMB ruled in favour of the project and the Ministry of the Environment has indicated that the project is compliant with its noise guidelines.

"Enbridge has a long history of serving customers with dependable energy and delivering conservation programs in Ontario," said Al Monaco, President of Enbridge Gas Distribution and responsible for Enbridge's operations in Ontario. "We are extremely pleased to be moving ahead with a renewable energy project that further illustrates our commitment to sustainability and, at the same time, will help address the province's electricity needs."

"I am very pleased that there has been public input into this project and that it is now moving forward," said Carol Mitchell, MPP Huron-Bruce. "This is a very exciting project which will create much needed green energy as this riding already produces 25 per cent of the province's clean, renewable energy."

"This project will deliver clean, renewable energy in Ontario, which will help diversify our electricity supply mix and enhance air quality throughout the province," said Ontario's Energy Minister, the Honourable Dwight Duncan. "The McGuinty government is delivering on its promise to increase the amount of renewable energy in Ontario."

"The community has been firmly behind this project throughout the process and we have worked hard to listen to and address the needs of stakeholders," said Bob Simpson, General Manager, Enbridge Ontario Wind Power. "The people of this area understand the value and importance of clean, renewable power and they have been extraordinarily supportive. We look forward to continuing to work with them as the project proceeds."
