Project Information

Dufferin Wind Power Inc. is harvesting wind power to support the long-term clean energy needs of Ontario. Dufferin Wind Power aims to be a significant and caring corporate citizen; educating Ontarians about the benefits of responsible energy sources and contributing lasting support to the local economy.

Longyuan Canada Renewables Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Longyuan Electric Power Group Corporation signed an agreement with Farm-Owned Power (Melancthon) Ltd. to create Dufferin Wind Power Inc.

The total installed capacity of the Melancthon project is 91.4 MW. The electricity generated from this project is expected to provide electrical energy needs for up to 30,000 households.

Longyuan Canada Renewables is one of a growing number of renewable energy companies that is participating in meeting the future demands for electricity – and specifically clean-source electricity.

The Ministry of Energy has released Ontario’s updated Long-Term Energy Plan, Achieving Balance, which encourages conservation and lays out a plan for clean, reliable and affordable energy for Ontarians, where and when they need it.

To complement the Ministry’s report and public consultations, the Ontario Power Authority prepared a presentation – Status, Outlook and Options for Electricity Service – to provide a more in-depth look at Ontario’s electricity system. More Info
