Community

Our facility sits on numerous private land parcels. We have worked hard to get to know all the landowners and to act as good neighbors. We pay approximately $4 million a year directly into the local economy. Over 20 years, we will pay an estimated $23 million in property taxes and contributions to a Community Vibrancy Fund.

The Community Vibrancy Fund is administered by Haldimand County and supports land stewardship development and construction of recreational facilities, infrastructure, and community service. Specific fund recipients include local libraries, parks, and community halls.

One of our key partners is Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation, which has a mission to achieve economic self-sufficiency without compromising the values of the Six Nations people. 

Ontario workers have been involved in every aspect of Grand Renewable Wind. Approximately 500 workers were on site during peak construction activity, with 98% of the workforce from Ontario. Twelve on-site team members currently operate and maintain the facility.

Environment

Grand Renewable Wind generates enough clean energy to power 50,000 Ontario homes. Compared to coal-fired generation, our production avoids CO2 emissions equal to removing 83,000 cars from the road  and conserves enough water to meet the needs of 12,000 Ontarians each year.

We also support the local wildlife refuge and work with them for the wellbeing of all wildlife around our facility.
