A New List of Projects

Lately, many new projects have popped up in the area. A few have retreated a tad (of course that doesn’t mean much…a lease signed is a lease signed). The OPA lists 126 Wind turbines for Middlesex County. Lambton County has at least double that number proposed. It looks as if the wind developers are trying to pack the area around the transmission lines. 
Below is a map of all the registered projects in Middlesex county and area (more are in the works that we do not know about yet: Please let us know of any new projects).

Here is a map of what the OPA would like to see in Transmission Expansion.

  What affects us in Middlesex County: 

#6        London Area to Sarnia
“There is a significant amount of existing generation located in the area West of London, including gas, wind, solar and coal. There is also significant interest in additional wind generation development in the area. The inter-tie with Michigan is located here as well. Reinforcement of the transmission system west of London would be required to enable the incorporation of the new renewable generation.”

#10      Huron South Enabler
“One of a number of enabling transmission lines identified for areas throughout the province. These lines will be constructed in areas where there is sufficient developer interest in shared connection facilities and will help to enable an even greater amount of renewable generation.”  

#20      London-Hamilton Area
“As higher levels of renewable generation development occur in the area west of London, the transfer of power from London toward the GTA will increase. When this transfer reaches the capability of the existing transmission system between London and Hamilton, renewable generation development will be limited. New transmission between London and Hamilton would alleviate this restriction and allow for further renewable generation development in London and western Ontario.”
