The Centennial Wind Power Facility is a wind farm built by SaskPower with a nameplate capacity of 150 MW. It is located in the hills roughly 25 km east of Swift Current, Saskatchewan. The wind farm was the first in Canada to have a capacity of at least 100 MW upon completion in 2006.[1]

The wind farm was built in two phases: first 75 and then 100 Senvion 2-megawatt wind turbines. The 150 megawatt wind farm has 83 Vestas V80 turbines, with a total rotor diameter of 80 metres and blade length of 39 metres, and can produce enough electricity for about 69,000 Saskatchewan homes.[2]
