Canadian Auto Workers Union Completes Wind Turbine Project

NAW Staff, Tuesday 26 March 2013 - 12:31:40

A wind turbine owned and operated by the Canadian Auto Workers Union (CAW) has begun operations in Port Elgin, Ontario.

"This is an important day, as the start-up of this wind turbine marks an environmental milestone for our union - this is the first union-owned and -operated wind turbine in Canada," says CAW President Ken Lewenza.

The start of the turbine comes after nine years of planning, preparation, construction and testing. The CAW says that the wind turbine, erected on the grounds of the union’s Family Education Centre (FEC), will generate the equivalent of 50% to 60% of the FEC's current energy needs.
