CAW leads renewable energy sector with Ontario’s first union-owned wind project
Ontario’s first 100% union-owned wind energy project breaks ground November 29, 2011, led by the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) union. Located at their Family Education Centre in Port Elgin, the single 500 kW wind turbine will generate 1600 MWh of renewable energy annually for the Ontario grid, powering the equivalent of 130 homes.
“We congratulate the CAW for their vision and leadership in bringing the project to fruition,” says Martin Ince, President of M. K. Ince and Associates (MKI). MKI has provided the CAW with consulting services in the planning and implementation of the project.
The project has been in development since 2004. The CAW was awarded a FIT contract in 2010.
“This project proves that with passion and commitment people can work together to make their communities cleaner, greener and more prosperous.” said Kristopher Stevens, Executive Director of the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association (OSEA). “The CAW should be proud and other communities across the province should recognize the opportunity the Green Energy Act and FIT program provides them to create local benefit through the greening of Ontario’s power grid and economy.”
