Ontario paying for wind turbines to not produce electricity
Ontario will start paying wind power generators not to produce electricity, but the government says the move will actually save ratepayers big bucks.
Ontario has had a surplus of power since 2006, but until now, the province paid for all the electricity generated from industrial wind mills, even when it wasn't needed.
Samsung, partner close financing for 150-MW Ontario wind project
With its scheduled completion date about a year away, developers of a 150-megawatt wind energy site in southwestern Ontario say financing for the project is now complete. With work already underway on another massive wind energy project 200 kilometres to the west between London, ON, and Windsor, ON, project developers Samsung Renewable Energy and Pattern Energy Group are nearing construction of their Grand Renewable Wind (GRW) project in Haldimand County, ON, along the shores of Lake Erie.
New solar projects proceeding
The next round of applications for (Feed-In Tariff) FIT projects will take place in early November and a price review for revenue from the alternative energy is set for January, according to a web post from the Ontario Power Authority — but this will not affect the Northumberland Community Power Co-operative's first three contracts.
