Comprised of up to 20 wind turbines, the project is estimated to create local benefits of approximately $3.6m over the lifetime of the project in community initiatives and property taxes and will create around 200 jobs during the construction phase.

EDF EN Canada Inc., a subsidiary of EDF Energies Nouvelles, today announced the signature of a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) for a total of 60 megawatts (MW) of wind energy. Selected by the IESO in the Large Renewable Procurement I Request for Proposal (“LRP I RFP”), this renewable energy project represents a strategic partnership between EDF EN Canada and the Aamjiwnaang First Nation.

The Romney Wind Energy Centre is situated on more than 10,000 acres of privately-owned land in the Municipality of Chatham-Kent and the Town of Lakeshore. Comprised of up to 20 wind turbines, the project is estimated to create local benefits of approximately $3.6 million over the lifetime of the project in community initiatives and property taxes and will create around 200 jobs during the construction phase.

Construction of the project is planned to begin in Summer 2018, following the receipt of all required provincial and municipal permits; commercial operation is expected in 2019. EDF EN Canada Inc. will continue to engage locally with the community, First Nations and other key stakeholders throughout the development process.
