Florida-based NextEra opens its first wind farm in Ontario with more on the way

nexterrorJohn Miner, London Free Press
With one done, and seven more going through the approval process, renewable energy giant NextEra Energy says it will consider building more wind farms in Ontario if it gets the chance.

“We are definitely looking at additional procurement programs,” said Josie Hernandez, communications specialist with Florida-based NextEra. “We’re committed here.”

NextEra announced Friday that it has completed construction and started operating its first wind farm in Ontario, Conestogo Wind, a 10-turbine project in Wellington County that is projected to generate enough power for 5,700 homes in an average year.

The company has six other wind farms under development in the London region which have sparked protests from wind energy opponents – Adelaide, Goshen, Bluewater, Jericho, Bornish, and East Durham. Read article

  1. Beware of a Whore known as “Josie”
    She’ll lie and say “everything’s rosy!”
    But her days, they are numbered
    And so we must wonder,
    will she say that her cell’s “nice and cozy!”?

  3. My blonde moment – Lou has a room

    The Liberals who in the 2003 and 2007 elections benefited greatly from this coalition lost a large chunk in 2011 and were denied a third majority. The path back to victory is in restoring the support among the progressive coalition. Among those seeking the leadership are women, gay and immigrant candidates. Thus Liberals have the potential of reestablishing their connection to the new progressive coalition.
