Canadian Renewable Energy Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canadian Hydro Developers, Inc., is proposing to develop a wind plant on Wolfe Island, in the Township of Frontenac Islands, near Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
The Wolfe Island Wind Project will consist of 86 2.3MW wind turbines, strategically placed throughout the western portion of Wolfe Island, and will generate approximately 198MW. Key ancillary features on Wolfe Island include access roads, a transformer station, collector and transmission lines, and an operations and maintenance building. Electricity generated by the Project will be transmitted by a submarine cable across the "Lower Gap" between Wolfe Island and Kingston, where it will be connected by underground transmission line to the provincial grid. Interconnection and a new switching station to facilitate the interconnection with the provincial grid will be located adjacent to Hydro One Networks Inc.'s existing Gardiners Transformer Station.
