Facts about the Golden South Wind Facility

  • Potentia Renewables owns and manages the facility, selling us the power it produces.
  • This is the province’s largest wind generation facility to date.
  • The facility:
    • includes 50 wind turbines
    • can generate enough power for up to 100,000 homes
  • To lower environmental impacts from the construction of wind farms — like birds and bats flying close by — we ensure the facility is built in an area with fewer migration paths and less vegetation.
  • Over the 25-year life of the facility, it will add an estimated $45 million back into the local community.
