July 18, 2016 – NOTICE OF A PROPOSED CHANGE
Dufferin Wind Power Inc. is proposing a temporary amendment to allow for the testing of new and more efficient software control technology on two of its existing turbines. The new software solution has been developed to allow for higher power output without significant changes to the original turbine noise characteristics.
DUFFERIN WIND POWER
The Dufferin Wind Farm spans more than 6,000 acres and is comprised of 49 wind turbines with the capacity to generate 91.4 MW of power annually. An average North American household uses about 10,500 kWh of electricity each year. This project has the ability to supply enough electricity to power between 22,500 and 30,000 households each year – whenever the wind is blowing. Theoretically, that’s more than enough power for every household in Dufferin County.
The local farmers and landowners who are involved in the Dufferin Wind Farm are enthusiastic about helping to provide clean energy for you and future generations, while also contributing to the financial well being of the Dufferin community.
