Community

Armow Wind committed $13.6 million to the Municipality of Kincardine as part of the Armow Wind Project Community Benefit Program, which included a $1 million contribution to the Kincardine Airport Improvement Project. True to our Canadian interests, we also sponsor local junior and minor hockey teams as well as many other causes.

An average of 200 workers were on site throughout project construction and approximately 350 workers during peak construction periods. Today, there are 15 workers on-site to operate and maintain the facility, with additional contractors utilized as needed.

Environment

In 2002, the Province committed to phasing out coal-fired generation, and the development of wind energy helped Ontario meet that goal in 2014. We’re proud to be part of that commitment. Compared to coal-fired generation, Armow Wind annually offsets the CO2 equivalent of 116,900 cars, and conserves enough water to supply 16,700 people.

The facility sits on agricultural land and is dotted with ponds and pastures for grazing sheep and cattle. Following project construction, we planted more than 200 native trees throughout the project area.
