Suncor Wind Project Sends Electricity to Ontario Grid

The Ripley Wind Power Project, a joint venture between Acciona Energy and Suncor Energy Products Inc. is now sending electricity to Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator.

The 76-megawatt facility is the first Ontario wind power project for both Suncor and Acciona. It is located near the town of Ripley on the eastern shores of Lake Huron. Operated by Acciona, the project consists of thirty-eight 2-MW turbines, two electrical substations and a 27-kilometer transmission line. This is the third wind farm jointly owned by Acciona and Suncor.

“Adding clean, affordable and sustainable electricity capacity is a top priority for our government,” said Minister of Energy and Member of Provincial Parliament Scarborough – Agincourt Gerry Phillips. “That’s why we have set a goal of doubling Ontario’s renewable energy supply to 15,700 megawatts by 2025. The Ripley wind farm, at 76 megawatts, is an important and welcome addition.”
