Pattern Energy and Samsung’s South Kent Wind reached commercial operation in 2014. The 270 megawatt (MW) wind facility is the largest operating in Ontario and has the capacity to produce clean renewable energy for approximately 100,000 Ontario homes each year.
Altogether, Samsung and Pattern Energy’s wind power projects in Ontario are creating thousands of manufacturing and construction jobs, contributing significant property taxes to host communities, and providing millions of dollars for schools and important community projects.
