Grand Renewable Wind

Haldimand County, Ontario

The Grand Renewable Wind facility is a joint venture between Pattern Canada, Samsung Renewable Energy, and Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation.

01 /
  • Our partner, Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation, has a mission to achieve economic self-sufficiency for the Six Nations Community without compromising the values of the Six Nations people.

  • The facility uses 67 Siemens Gamesa 2.3 MW wind turbines with blades and towers made in Ontario. The blades were manufactured in Tillsonburg by Siemens, and the towers were manufactured in Windsor by CS Wind with Ontario steel.

  • Grand Renewable Wind brings economic benefits to the Haldimand community, including an estimated $8 million in property taxes and $15 million for the Community Vibrancy Fund over the first 20 years of operations.

Haldimand County administers the Community Vibrancy Fund to support land stewardship initiatives, recreational facilities, community and protective services, and public infrastructure. 

We place great importance on being active in the communities where we have a presence.

Approximately 500 workers were on-site during peak construction activity in 2014, with 98% of the workforce from Ontario. Twelve team members operate and maintain the facility with the help of local contractors.

Electricity produced by the 149 MW wind facility is equal to the annual needs of ~120,000 Ontarians and sold to the Independent Electricity System Operator under a 20-year power purchase agreement.

Ontario committed to phasing out coal-fired generation in 2002 and met that goal in 2014 with the help of wind energy. Today, wind turbines harness the wind across the province to generate homegrown energy without harmful emissions.
