  • World-class legislative environment for wind power
  • Anticipated growth in wind energy supply
  • Large & integrated electric system
  • Green Energy and Green Economy Act (GEA) includes
    • streamlined approval process for wind projects
    • Guaranteed Feed-in Tarrif (FIT) of $135/MWh
  • Clear legislation and responsive government eliminate bureaucratic roadblocks vis-à-vis other markets
  • While wind accounted for only 1.9% of total electric output in 2010, the Independent Electricity System Operator anticipates the GEA will accelerate the expansion of wind energy by thousands of megawatts
  • Over 500 MW of additional installed capacity under development
  • Ontario is Canada’s largest producer and consumer of electricity with over 38 GW of installed capacity
  • Large peak consumer demand and integration with hydro supply favor additional wind production

proposed wind farm
Proposed Wind Farm
  • 19.8 MW Installed capacity in Phase I and II (Up to 40 MW in Phase III)
  • 10 km north of the town of Grand Valley and 21 km northwest of the town of Orangeville
  • Relatively simple terrain with gentle slopes and elevation ranging between 470-490m

Project Status Details

Land Control

  • Option to Lease agreements are fully executed with nine landowners for Phase 1&2
  • Phase 3 is in the land acquisition stage.
  • Phases 1&2 of the project have obtained Connection Impact Assessment (CIA) approvals for Vestas V90 turbines
  • CIA revisions currently being obtained for Siemens SWT-2.3-101 turbines
  • Phase 1 has entered into a Connection Cost Agreement with Hydro One Networks Inc, the Local Distribution Company; Phase 2 will also shortly
  • Two met towers in close proximity to proposed turbine locations collected wind data from 2005-2008.
  • All significant environmental approvals and milestones completed for Phase I and II
  • It is anticipated that a significant amount of the environmental studies completed for Phase 1&2 can be applied towards obtaining a Renewable Energy Approval (REA) for Phase 3
  • Garrad Hassan was contracted to create the optimal turbine layout, taking into account noise setbacks and other constraints
