Wind turbines have been a familiar signature on the East Elgin landscape for several years…in fact you don’t have to drive far out of St. Thomas to spot them on the horizon.

The economy is being blamed, in part, for the delay of an expansion of the Erie Shores Wind Farm west into Elgin county.
AIM PowerGen, the developer of Erie Shores Wind Farm in Bayham and Malahide, recently announced plans for expansion are being put on hold. AIM developed the concept of Erie Shores, optioned land and sold the concept to the Clean Power Income Fund to build. Erie Shores has since been purchased by Macquarie Power and Infrastructure Fund.
