This 270 MW, 124-turbine wind farm, is currently being appealed to the Environmental Review Tribunal. As of yet, no wind energy projects in Ontario have been permanently stopped because of a tribunal ruling. If the appeal is overruled, this project should be under construction by 2013 and completed in 2014.
This project is being undertaken in partial fulfillment of the Green Energy Investment Agreement, which commits Samsung to invest $7 billion in Ontario’s renewable energy manufacturing and energy production industries.
