TransCanada Corp. (TSX:TRP) has received final development plan approval for its Kibby wind power project from Maine's Land Use Regulation Commission.

The Calgary-based company said it has now begun to prepare construction plans for the 132-megawatt wind project.

"The Kibby project will complement our existing operations in the U.S. Northeast, and leverage our expertise in wind energy," president and CEO Hal Kvisle said in a release.

"We expect our investment to produce strong returns for our shareholders."

TransCanada plans to build 44 wind turbine generators on 22 kilometres of ridge line on Kibby Mountain and Kibby Range, just south of the Quebec border at a cost of US $320 million, creating up to 250 jobs during a 12-to 18-month construction period.

The wind farm is expected to be able to power the equivalent of 50,000 average homes in Maine.

The Maine Department of Environmental Protection has already issued permits for the project and another is expected from the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
