149 MW 'Grand Renewable' wind project reaches commercial operation.

Grand Renewable Wind utilizes 67 Siemens 2.3 MW wind turbines with blades and towers that were made in Ontario. “We’re proud to bring our proven technology to the Grand Renewable Wind project and to continue to provide Ontario with jobs, economic growth and affordable and sustainable wind energy,” said Jacob Andersen, head of wind power renewables, Siemens Canada Limited.
According to Mike Garland, CEO of Pattern Energy, the commissioning of the Grand Renewable Wind facility  brings the number of Ontario facilities to two in operation, two in construction and two in late stage development, totaling 1,269 megawatts to be installed in the province by 2018. “We are honored to be able to further expand our presence in Ontario through this partnership with the Six Nations,” Garland said. "We would like to thank the Six Nations and the community of Haldimand for their support.”
The Grand Renewable Wind facility has the capacity to produce clean power for approximately 50,000 Ontario homes each year.
“Wind provides clean, emission-free electricity for Ontarians while creating thousands of jobs and economic opportunities,” said Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Energy. “Collaborative projects like this one will help wind reach 15 per cent of the province’s installed capacity by 2025.”
Steve Cho, vice president, Samsung C&T, said Samsung is proud to be part of the Haldimand community and is excited about the historic equity agreement with Six Nations Elected Council. "The Grand Renewable Wind facility along with our other projects in the Province are creating thousands of high-skilled jobs that will benefit real people in this community and across Ontario," he stated.
