Our partner, Walpole Island First Nation (Bkejwanong Territory), encompasses six islands occupied by the Ojibwe, Potawatomi, and Odawa peoples for thousands of years. The First Nation is committed to a sustainable future within its Traditional Territory, including being heavily involved in the renewable energy sector.
The site uses 34 Ontario-made 3.2 MW wind turbines with Siemens blades manufactured in Tillsonburg and CS Wind towers built in Windsor using steel from the province.
North Kent Wind brings economic benefits to the region, including approximately $5 million over the first 20 years of operations in property taxes for the Municipality and local schools.
