On June 2, 2017, Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Peterborough and District Wapiti Métis Council (PDWMC) had the opportunity to visit the Snowy Ridge Wind Park near Bethany. The tour was part of their ongoing learning, education and a continuation from the renewable energy workshop that the MNO PDWMC hosted in 2016.

Snowy Ridge Wind Park is a ten megawatt (MW) wind energy project, consisting of five wind turbines. The MNO PDWMC was joined by Erin Jaggard and Steve Rankin of Capstone Infrastructure.

Capstone Infrastructure commenced construction of the wind park in July 2016 and it has been operating since October 2016. Erin and Steve facilitated the tour and provided the Council with a wonderful educational experience.

The MNO PDWMC wishes to thank Capstone Infrastructure for the great tour.
