Otter Creek Wind Farm is a wind power project located in the northwestern area of the Municipality of Chatham-Kent, near the town of Wallaceburg. When completed, the project will have a generating capacity of up to 50 MW and include:

  • Wind turbines
  • Access roads
  • A substation
  • A collector network
  • A possible transmission line

The exact number of turbines and the locations of these components has yet to be determined.

On March 9, 2016, as part of its Large Renewable Procurement I (LRP I) process, the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) of Ontario awarded the project a contract to supply renewable energy.  For more information on the IESO LRP, you can visit the IESO website.

The project is now moving ahead with securing a Renewable Energy Approval (REA) from the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) as the next step of its fruition.

The project is being developed by Otter Creek Wind Farm Limited Partnership, a partnership between RES Canada and Boralex.
