We are very pleased to inform you that we were successful with our bid and, on March 10, 2016, we have been awarded a contract by the IESO for 60 MW to build the Romney Wind Energy Centre in the town of Lakeshore and the municipality of Chatham Kent.
About the project:
The project will be situated on more than 10,000 acres of privately-owned land, with a capacity of 60 megawatts (MW), located in the municipalities of Chatham-Kent and the Town of Lakeshore. The wind park boundary is approximately bordering the following roads: Middle Road (North), Highway 3 (South), Campbell Road (East), Highway 77 (West).
The connection point to the public grid is anticipated to be located within the Town of Lakeshore close to Richardson Sideroad. No Connection (transmission) line is required for this project.

Please note that the exact final locations of some of the Site Considerations information within the Project area, such as Project infrastructures, are not defined with precision at this time and will be determined via public consultation, and as Project area studies are completed. Technical and environmental studies help us better understand and minimize potential impacts on the community, the environment, cultural heritage, archaeology and other major items.
