More wind and solar farms on the way in Southwestern Ontario  

Credit:  More wind, solar farms on the way | By John Miner, The London Free Press | Friday, September 18, 2015 | www.lfpress.com ~~

The competition for the next round of green energy contracts in Ontario turned out to be as fierce as forecast.

Although there was a relatively moderate amount of power to be contracted under a new bidding system, a total of 103 projects have been submitted to Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator.

“Our target is to notify successful applicants and offer contracts by the end of the year,” a spokesperson for IESO said Friday.

Though Southwestern Ontario has been heavily targeted for wind and solar farm development in the past with large stretches along Lake Huron and Erie now developed, most of the proposals this time are for eastern and northern Ontario.

Part of two of the wind farm projects would be located in Middlesex County.

Up for grabs in this round of contracts is a total of 300 megawatts of wind energy, 140 megawatts of solar, 50 megawatts of bioenergy and 75 megawatts of water power.

The companies submitting the bids were required to consult with local communities about their plans before the Sept. 1 deadline.
