Our Projects

Samsung has partnered with some of the world’s leading renewable energy companies including CS Wind, Siemens,Canadian Solar and SMA Solar to produce state-of-the-art clean energy components – including wind towers and blades, and solar modules and inverters – in four new manufacturing facilities in Ontario.

Samsung will then use these made-in-Ontario components in our wind and solar projects. 

These projects are part of what will be the world’s largest cluster of wind and solar power – right here in Ontario. This is a direct result of Samsung’s Green Energy Investment Agreement with the Government of Ontario, which commits Samsung and its partners to bring $5-Billion in investment to Ontario to create new manufacturing jobs and capacity and generate 1,369 megawatts of renewable energy.

Wind Projects

  • Samsung Renewable Energy Inc and Pattern Development are jointly developing the Belle River Wind project in the Town of Lakeshore.
  • More information on the 180MW Armow Wind project can be found by visiting: www.armowwind.com
  • K2
    K2 Wind Ontario is a limited partnership between Capital Power LP, Samsung Renewable Energy Inc.and Pattern Development.
  • Samsung and Pattern Energy signed a historic agreement with Six Nations Elected Council, making them an equity partner in the 150 megawatt Grand Renewable Wind project.
  • Samsung and Pattern Energy’s South Kent Wind reached commercial operation in 2014. The 270 megawatt wind facility is the largest operating in Ontario and has the capacity to produce clean renewable energy

Solar Projects

  • Mountsberg Solar
    Mountsberg Solar LP is proposing to submit a proposal to the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) to design, build, and operate a non-rooftop solar facility, to be located in Flamborough in the City of Hamilton
  • Windsor Solar
    Windsor Solar LP proposes to develop a solar facility with a maximum capacity of 50 megawatts alternating current (MW AC), located on the Windsor International Airport Property in the City of Windsor, Ontario. The renewable energy facility will be known as the Windsor Solar Project.
  • Southgate Solar
    Southgate Solar LP proposes to develop a solar facility with a maximum name plate capacity of 50 megawatts alternating current (MW AC), located near Mount Forest, in the Township of Southgate, County of Grey, Ontario. This renewable energy facility will be known as the Southgate Solar Project.
  • Kingston Solar
    Construction is underway at Kingston Solar, one of the largest solar projects in Canada. The 100 megawatt solar facility will generate enough clean power for approximately 17,000 homes in Ontario. The project is scheduled to be operational in the fall of 2015.
  • Grand Renewable Wind and Solar
    Samsung and Pattern Energy signed a historic agreement with Six Nations Elected Council, making them an equity partner in the 150 megawatt Grand Renewable Wind project.
Blades mounted on towers are blown by the wind, causing them to turn a shaft that's attached to a generator. This creates an electrical current that is carried by cables to the power grid, which, in turn, transmits electricity to your home.

The first windmill was built in Persia in approximately 500 AD, used for grinding corn. The first large windmill used to generate electricity was invented in 1888 in Cleveland, Ohio.

 

Solar energy is heat, light and other radiation emitted from the sun. It is responsible for providing the necessary energy to power almost all natural processes on earth, including wind. If you took all the energy generated by man and planet earth in a day, it only amounts to 1/10,000th of the sun's energy as it hits the earth.
