Suncor is committed to increasing renewable energy generation in Canada and building best-in-class wind energy projects.
Suncor Energy Products Inc. (Suncor) has qualified with the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) as a proponent to bid into the Large Renewable Procurement (LRP) process.
On Sept. 1, 2015, we submitted a bid into the Independent Electricity System Operator’s (IESO) Large Renewable Procurement (LRP I) process on this project.
On March 9, 2016, the IESO informed Suncor that they were not a successful bidder in the LRP 1 process.
We continue to be supportive of renewable energy development and will look forward to future opportunities in Ontario, including LRP2, and elsewhere across Canada.
Should you have any questions about the proposed Nauvoo wind power project, please feel free to contact us directly.
Detailed information about the proposed project can be found below.
The Nauvoo Wind Power Project is a proposed project with a preliminary location within the Township of Warwick including a possible connection point to the IESO’s controlled grid in the Municipality of Brooke-Alvinston in Ontario.
The proposed project would be up to 75 megawatts (MW) and the preliminary boundary is roughly East-West by Donnelly Road and Forest Road, and North-South by Hickory Creek Line and Petrolia Line. The project would include wind turbines, underground collector lines, access roads, transmission line and substation.
The proposed Nauvoo Wind Power Project is in early stages of development. We see this as an opportunity to share information and receive initial feedback from the community about the concept of the project. Proposed turbine locations and connections lines have not been and will not be determined until we have received feedback from stakeholders and have been awarded a contract.

We know there are many questions the community may have with a proposed project. We’ve gathered some of the most frequently asked questions for you below.
Thank you for joining us at our public Community Meetings to learn more about Suncor and Nauvoo. These meetings were an opportunity for us to build relationships, ask for feedback from stakeholders and introduce the project concepts. We look forward to continuing stakeholder engagement efforts should we be successful in our LRP I bid to the IESO.

In November 2014, the Ontario Power Authority, now the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), developed a new competitive process for the procurement of renewable energy projects generally larger than 500 kilowatts (kW). This new process allows for eligible proponents to submit a bid by Sept. 1, 2015. The LRP process encourages stakeholder engagement, Aboriginal participation and sharing early site work information with the community.
