North Kent Wind is located in a farm landscape in the Municipality of Chatham-Kent in southwestern Ontario. North Kent Wind is a joint venture between Pattern Development and Samsung Renewable Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung C&T Corporation.

Community

We expect to generate $250,000 in property taxes annually and to directly contribute additional funds to community initiatives. Our support of the community is centered on the municipality of Chatham-Kent, with our initial community investments going to support the local Mental Health Network, YMCA, Junior Achievement South Western Ontario, and Friends of the New Animal Shelter. 

During the year of construction, we employed an average of 100 local workers and 175 during peak periods. As we approach operations, we will have 10 full-time staff on-site and additional contractors as needed.

Environment

In full operation, the facility will generate the electricity needs of 35,000 Ontario homes, and offset the annual COequivalent of 60,000 cars. We will also annually conserve enough water to supply the needs of 9,000 Ontario residents.

Technology

North Kent Wind reached commercial operations in early 2018 and is composed of 34 Siemens turbines with Ontario-made blades and towers. The 100 MW project has a 20-year power purchase agreement from the Ontario Independent Electricity System Operator. The municipality, through a majority-owned affiliate company, will have the option to acquire a 15% equity interest in the project.
