The Armow Wind power facility in Ontario is now up and running. Samsung Renewable Energy and Pattern Energy Group announced their 180 MW Armow Wind power facility has completed construction and is fully operational.

Armow Wind is expected to generate enough clean energy to power about 70,000 Ontario homes each year, based on average annual residential energy use in Ontario.

Constructed using Ontario-made products, Armow Wind provided jobs for more than 350 Ontario workers during peak construction activity with an average of 200 workers on-site throughout the construction process. Towers for the 91 Siemens 2.3 MW wind turbines were made in Windsor and the 273 blades were manufactured in Tillsonburg by more than 750 Ontario workers.

In addition to producing clean power, Armow Wind is bringing strong economic benefits to the Kincardine community, including more than $75 million over 20 years in property taxes, landowner lease royalties and community benefits. Armow Wind committed $13.6 million dollars to the municipality of Kincardine as part of a long-term Community Benefit Program, which supports education and other initiatives, including a contribution of $1 million to the Kincardine Airport to improve local operations.

The Armow Wind power facility operates under a 20-year power purchase agreement with the Independent Electricity System Operator.
