Broughton Wind represents a private investment of approximately $478 million that will provide widespread direct and indirect job creation and local economic benefits.
During construction, Broughton Wind will create about 150 to 200 jobs, including equipment operators, electricians, labourers, and other professionals from a range of disciplines. We prioritize hiring locally when possible. Once operational, approximately 7 to 10 permanent staff will operate and maintain the facility.
Broughton Wind will provide local families with a new reliable income source through land leases and make significant contributions to the community. The stable, long-term funding will contribute to education, community services, and more.
