Welcome to McLean's Mountain

Thank you for taking the time to visit the wind energy section of the Northland Power website and the McLean’s Mountain Wind Farm project page. We are proud of the project.

As Senior Project Manager, I’ve been based in Little Current and responsible for this project for nearly 8 of its 10 years with Northland Power. I have established more than just working relationships with many of you; you’ve become friends. That’s very important to me.

Bringing renewable energy to the Island is personal. I want to see it done well and I want to see it done with full community engagement.

I meet and talk about the project while having lunch at the One Stop, in line-up to purchase hardware at Tim’s and while getting a hair cut at Phreddie’s. You haven’t held back and shouldn’t with your concerns, issues or dreams for what this could be to Little Current and Manitoulin. The fact we created a partnership with the UCCMM’s Mnidoo Mnising Power company is proof we are responsive to local needs and values.

Let’s keep talking. Please drop by the project office, give me a call or send me an email. Keep reading my weekly columns, that keep you informed about the project, in the Expositor too.


All the best,

Rick Martin
McLean's Mountain Project Manager
