K2 WIND POWER PROJECT

One of Ontario’s most promising renewable facilities.  

The 270 megawatt (MW) K2 Wind Power Project is proposed for development in the Township of Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh (ACW).  Based on our experience, ACW is one of the best locations in Ontario to harvest energy from the wind.  

On July 23, 2013 K2 Wind received its Renewable Energy Approval (REA) from the Ministry of the Environment (MOE).  Construction activities are expected to start later this year. 


WE’RE LISTENING

You asked us to…

             

We are…

  • Find ways of sharing direct and tangible Project benefits with the wider community.
  • Minimize the visual impact of equipment and infrastructure associated with the proposed wind farm.
  • Respect the values and visual beauty of the community and region by not impeding views of the lake.
  • Provide direct employment opportunities for local residents and source construction materials locally.
  • Change proposed locations of turbines to ensure they don’t interfere with the future construction of area homes.
 
  • Developing the Community Renewable Energy Benefit for landowners with homes within one kilometre of Project infrastructure.
  • Burying almost all power lines used to collect and distribute the energy from K2 Wind turbines to reduce visual obstructions. 
  • Locating all turbines east of Highway 21 to ensure an unobstructed westward view of the lake.
  • Creating employment during construction and permanent full-time jobs, many filled by local residents.
  • Relocating turbine locations on leased land to ensure this has happened, and in some cases, to preserve unobstructed views.
