Installed capacity of 100-megawatts of renewable energy

Project overview

Nation Rise Wind Farm is located approximately 40 kilometers southeast of Ottawa, ON. The Nation Rise Wind Farm is situated in the Municipality of North Stormont within the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry. The area is mainly comprised of agriculture land predominantly used for dairy farming, corn, and soybeans.

The Nation Rise Wind Farm was submitted in the 2015 Large Renewable Procurement I (LRPI) facilitated by the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO). In March 2016, the Nation Rise Wind Farm was a Selected Proponent in the IESO's LRP I and was awarded a contract to provide Ontario with 100MW of clean, renewable energy. The project was granted its Renewable Energy Approval (0871-AV3TFM) on May 4th, 2018.

The Nation Rise Wind Farm successfully achieved commercial operation on June 14th, 2021 as confirmed by the Ontario IESO and will provide renewable electricity to Ontario for a period of 20 years.

Home Improvement Fund

The Home Improvement Fund (HIF) was established as part of an agreement between the Concerned Citizens of North Stormont (CCNS) and the Nation Rise Wind Farm to provide households within 1.5 kilometers of wind turbines the opportunity to apply for funding for home improvements that will mitigate perceived noise or visual impacts from the operation of the project.

A one-time $150,000 donation will be made by the Nation Rise Wind Farm to the HIF which is available now that the project has reached commercial operations. The application period is open and will close July 14th, 2022 and the fund will be distributed in late summer 2022. Application forms for the fund have been provided under the Home Improvement Fund section of the downloads section. A map of the catchment area and a list of all homes within the area has also been provided for download. Interested applicants are advised to review these documents for eligibility and for further information on the HIF and application requirements.
