A 34.5 kilovolt (kV) connection system was installed to connect the wind turbines to the substation. A 34.5/230 kV substation was built to step-up the generation to 230 kV for connection to the Hydro One owned 230 kV circuits W44LC and/or W45LC to feed into the Ontario electricity market administered by the Independent Electricity System Operator.
This wind farm will generate approximately 275,000 megawatt-hours of renewable energy per year.
