Located approximately 40 kilometers southeast of Ottawa, ON near the South Nation River, 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.
