PDR (Project Description Report) of Romney Wind Energy Center (updated on February 2017)
As part of the REA requirements, Romney Wind Energy Centre will be forming a Community Liaison Committee (CLC) to exchange ideas and share interests with residents and members of the public and Indigenous communities during the construction and operation phases of the Project.
The objectives of the committee are to:
- Ensure effective communication between residents, land users and the developer;
- Identify issues related to the development of the wind farm;
- Recommend satisfactory solutions to stakeholders;
- Encourage participation of local businesses.
To learn more about Romney Community Liaison Committee, consult the CLC Public Notice and Participant Workbook.
The local municipalities and its residents will realize many benefits, including:
- Around $ 170,000 a year for community initiatives and bring real added value to the community.
- Around $ 55,000 in annual taxes.
- More than two hundred (200) construction jobs at the peak of construction.
- Four (4) or more full time jobs, locally based, to support and service the facility during the operating period
- Important opportunities for the local and surrounding economy during construction through (local services, contractors and materials for project construction, local businesses and hospitality sector).
If you have questions, comments or any interest in the Project, please contact us at any time.

The Site Considerations Report and Maps gather Project features such as the Site boundaries and the proposed Point of Interconnection as well as local and provincial constraints regarding natural heritage, infrastructures, administrative boundaries, etc. A detailed list of the main Site Considerations Information presented on the maps follows.
Please note that the exact final locations of some of the Site Considerations information within the Project area, such as Project infrastructures, are not defined with precision at this time and will be determined via public consultation, and as Project area studies are completed. Technical and environmental studies help us better understand and minimize potential impacts on the community, the environment, cultural heritage, archeology and other major items.

About the project:
The project will be situated on more than 10,000 acres of privately-owned land, with a capacity of 60 megawatts (MW), located in the municipalities of Chatham-Kent and the Town of Lakeshore. The wind park boundary is approximately bordering the following roads: Middle Road (North), Highway 3 (South), Campbell Road (East), Highway 77 (West).
The connection point to the public grid is anticipated to be located within the Town of Lakeshore close to Richardson Sideroad. No Connection (transmission) line is required for this project.
