At Capital Power, we contribute to the communities in which we operate with the aim of building a sustainable future for all.

  • We completed Community Benefits Agreements with the Six Nations of the Grand River and the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs’ Council regarding our facility, including. annual scholarships for Haudenosaunee youth at $10,000 per year for 20 years.

Port Dover & Nanticoke Wind facility is unique due to a larger population living within the project area. One of my most rewarding accomplishments has been representing Capital Power within the community and building lasting relationships.
