Bluewater Wind Energy Centre

Development on the Bluewater Wind Energy Centre began in 2006 by Canadian Green Power. In 2007, NextEra and Canadian Green Power began working together. This wind energy project has a maximum generating capacity of up to 60 megawatts. The wind farm is located within the Bluewater Township, with electrical interconnection extending into Huron East. At the maximum generating capacity, the Bluewater Wind Energy Centre will produce enough energy for approximately 15,000 homes in Ontario. This project has been awarded a Feed-in-Tariff contract by the Ontario Power Authority and has received the approval from the Ministry of the Environment on its Renewable Energy Approval application.
On January 23, 2014, the Notice of Application for Electricity Generation License was added and can be found below, under the Ontario Energy Board - Documents tab.
