North Kent WindNorth Kent Wind is located in on farmland in the Municipality of Chatham-Kent in southwestern Ontario. The facility is a partnership between Pattern Energy, Samsung Renewable Energy Inc, Bkejwanong First Nation (Walpole Island First Nation), and the Municipality of Chatham-Kent through its affiliate Entegrus Inc. 

The 100 MW facility began commercial operation in 2018 and is expected to generate $5 million dollars in property taxes over its first 20 years of operations, in addition to a community benefits contribution to the Municipality and sponsorships of local causes over the life of the facility. North Kent Wind also made a substantial contribution to the Friends of the New Animal Shelter to support their efforts to build a new shelter. 

The facility employed an average of 200 workers from Ontario during the year-long construction phase. Approximately 10 workers currently operate and maintain the facility, in addition to the continued use of local contractors.
