HAF Wind Energy Project
The HAF Wind Energy Project is located in the township of West Lincoln in the Niagara Region of south‐western Ontario. The project is located south of the community of Tweedside, west of the community of West Lincoln and east of the community of Woodburn. The environmental studies were conducted over an area of 4800 hectares and all the project components are located on privately‐owned agricultural lots within the study area. The topography of the area is open flat land with an elevation of 190m to 197m. The energy collection system runs underground along the newly constructed access roads as well as public road right of ways. All wind turbines are located on open agricultural fields and respect all setbacks from residences, natural heritage, water and other features as required under the REA.
