The Ontario Power Authority (OPA) has announced that it has awarded long-term contracts for six green energy projects. These projects will help create about 2,200 jobs and power a cleaner, greener, energy future for all Ontarians.
The six new wind power projects – three to be located in Chatham-Kent and one each in Essex, Prince Edward County and Thunder Bay – will provide enough electricity for more than 120,000 homes.
“This is a major green economic initiative, one which will benefit all of Ontario,” said George Smitherman, Deputy Premier and Minister of Energy and Infrastructure. “We are determined to maximize the development of the province’s green energy sources so we can not only clean up our air, but kick start our economy, bringing new jobs and fresh sources of revenue to local communities.”
