ABSTRACT
The article presents an update on the K2 Wind Power Project (K2 Wind), located in Goderich, Ontario. The 270 megawatt project completed 850 million dollars financing, which was secured with 15 financial institutions. The project is using Ontario-made products, including 140 wind turbine towers made in Windsor, England, and blades made in Tillsonburg, Ontario.
