Approximately 375 workers were onsite to construct the project, with a workforce consisting of 75% Manitobans and an additional 18% from other provinces. Ten team members operate and maintain the site, in addition to the use of local contractors and seasonal workers.
Over the first 27 years of operations, St. Joseph Wind will pay an estimated $44 million in property taxes and $38 million to the family farmers hosting the facility. Two-thirds of the tax revenue goes to education and one-third to the local communities.
