The Bluewater Wind Energy Center in Huron County, Ontario, has begun commercial operation, NextEra Energy Partners LP (NEP) announced.

The project is composed of 37 turbines and can generate up to 60 MW of electricity — enough to power some 15,000 homes in Ontario. The Bluewater Wind Energy Center is owned by Bluewater Wind LP, an indirect subsidiary of NextEra Energy Canada Partners Holdings ULC.

"We are proud that the Bluewater Wind Energy Center not only contributes emissions-free electricity to Ontarians, but also that we have been able to significantly contribute to the local economy in Huron County through the development of this important project," said Armando Pimentel, president of NextEra Energy Partners. "We are very proud to add this terrific asset to our growing portfolio."

Since receiving its Renewable Energy Approval in April 2013 and beginning construction that November, the Bluewater Wind Energy Center has invested nearly $4 million in local businesses in Huron County. Throughout the construction phase, more than 200 local workers and 16 Huron County businesses contributed to the project, providing services that ranged from labor to materials and equipment to utilities, housing and subcontractors.
