Our Projects

Samsung has partnered with some of the world’s leading renewable energy companies including CS Wind, Siemens 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. Over the next three years, Samsung, working in partnership with Pattern Energy and Capital Power, will establish wind projects in Haldimand County, Chatham-Kent, Kincardine and in the Township of Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh.

Samsung will establish solar projects in Haldimand County and in the City of Kingston and Loyalist Township.

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.

  • Samsung, together with Pattern Energy, is developing a 270 megawatt wind project in Chatham-Kent.
  • Samsung is developing a 100 megawatt solar farm in Haldimand County. Working with Pattern Energy, Samsung is also developing a 150 megawatt wind project in Haldimand.
  • Samsung is developing a 100 megawatt solar farm in Kingston and Loyalist Township.
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.
