KINGSTON

Windstream’s Wolfe Island Shoals Offshore Wind Power Project will create 1,900 jobs during its five-year development and construction period.

A study conducted by AECOM to explore the employment and economic impacts of the project in Ontario also indicates that 175 long-term jobs will be created during its subsequent operational period.

The project will generate over $700 million in direct Ontario-based capital expenditures. The Wolfe Island Shoals Offshore Wind Project received a Feed-In-Tariff contract from the Ontario Power Authority in April for its 300 MW project in Lake Ontario offshore from Kingston. This is the first and only offshore project to receive a contract in Ontario.
