A wind farm with a capacity of 270MW has officially been opened in Canada.

The K2 Wind Power facility is expected to generate enough energy to power around 100,000 homes in Ontario per year.

According to the Canadian Wind Energy Association, the project has helped the country surpass 10GW of installed wind capacity.

The wind farm is expected to generate benefits worth around $15 million (£9.6m) in the next 20 years and the cash will be used to fund community initiatives.

It was developed in a partnership between Pattern Energy, Samsung Renewable Energy and Capital Power Corporation.

Mr Steve Cho, Vice President at Samsung C&T said: “The K2 Wind facility along with our other projects in the Province are creating thousands of high-skilled jobs that will benefit real people in this community and across Ontario.”
