NextEra Energy Canada has announced that subsidiary Summerhaven Wind LP has achieved commercial operation at its 124.4 MW Summerhaven Wind Energy Centre. The wind farm, located in Haldimand County, Ontario, comprises 56 turbines.

Development on the Summerhaven Wind Energy Centre began in 2006, and the project received a Renewable Energy Approval in March 2012. Throughout the 10-month construction phase, NextEra says more than 300 local workers and 55 Ontario businesses contributed to the project through services ranging from materials, equipment, utilities, labor, housing and subcontractors.
