Cornwall - Jun. 13, 2011 - Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry’s clean energy economy continues to grow, creating good jobs by adding 11 clean energy projects.

Through Ontario’s Feed-in Tariff program, these new mid-size projects — including solar, biomass, biogas, water and wind — will power homes, businesses, hospitals and schools. That is enough electricity to power more than 16,000 homes or a community the size of Niagara-on-the-Lake each year. In total, these projects will help attract more than $900 million in private sector investment to Ontario.

Companies participating in the clean energy economy in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry include:

Canadian Tire Corporation, Limited (Morrisburg)
Alain and Susan Leduc (Moose Creek)
Thurler Farms Inc. (South Mountain)
CEW K0C SOLAR I PARTNERSHIP (Moose Creek)
Claude Castonguay (Moose Creek)
Twin Gate Farms Inc. (Williamsburg)
Nine Mile Farms Inc. (Crysler)
Alain and Susan Leduc (Moose Creek)
Bretzler Farms Ltd. (Crysler)
Irradia Energy USA LLC (Iroquois)
Raisin River Farms Inc. (Cornwall)

Ontario is replacing dirty, coal-fired plants with cleaner sources of renewable energy like water, wind, solar and bio-energy. It's part of the McGuinty government's plan to keep costs down for families today, while building a clean, modern and reliable electricity system for tomorrow. Ontario's Green Energy Act will create 50,000 clean energy jobs by the end of 2012. 13,000 jobs have already been created as a result of our plan.

“These projects will create good jobs in our community, provide power for homes and businesses and clean up the air for our children and grandchildren. This will also ensure Ontario continues to be a North American leader in the clean energy economy," said Jim Brownell, MPP for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry
