This is one of a small group of wind generators on the Bruce Peninsula between Lake Huron and Georgian Bay in Ontario. The turbines at this site are capable of generating 1.8 MW of power each when the wind is blowing at more than about 4 m/s and less than 25 m/s. This is enough power for several hundred homes. By comparison the six operational reactors at the nearby Bruce Nuclear power plant generate almost 800 MW each.
