Kruger Energy has opened the Port Alma wind farm in Chatham-Kent, Ontario. All 44 wind turbines at the wind farm are now operational.

The 101.2MW project, located on the north shore of Lake Erie, will generate over 300GWh of power per year; producing enough electricity to power approximately 30,000 Ontario households annually.

The wind power project will receive up to C$31 million in funding, over 10 years, under the government of Canada’s ecoENERGY for Renewable Power program. This C$0.01 per KWh ecoENERGY incentive will help to ensure that clean electricity generated at the site can be delivered to Ontario consumers at competitive prices.

Ontario’s vast wind resource has only begun to be harnessed and we look forward to continuing to work with the Ontario government to provide additional sources of green power.”
