WindShare projects convert wind energy into clean electricity.
Project Description (from TREC’s website)
TREC initiated the wind turbine project on Toronto’s waterfront and in partnership with Toronto Hydro built the first urban-based commercial scale wind turbine in North America and the first large-scale wind energy co-operative in Canada.
Located at the Exhibition Place, the turbine was erected in December 2002 and started generating power in January 2003. It was built by a Dutch company, Lagerwey Windmaster B.V, and is the first of its kind in North America. The turbine stands thirty stories tall and has the capacity to power up to 250 homes. Electricity from the wind yields no emissions and no waste.
Please note: Windshare is currently not accepting investments and new members. The Lakewind project is still in the development phase, and we are waiting to hear from the Ontario Power Authority about a Feed in Tariff Contract. Please check back for updates. We thank you for your interest.
