The ExPlace wind turbine has been part of Toronto City skyline for over 18 years.
Our project was so ahead of its time, it was initially permitted as an amusement ride!
The project is also the most visible renewable energy project worldwide with more than 67,000 people passing by it every day.
The wind turbine is a Lagerwey model that is still installed for new projects today.
The weight of the wind turbine is approximately 121 tonnes.
The 640kW direct-drive generator produces enough energy to power over 100 homes.
This single wind turbine has saved more CO2 emissions than 20,000 trees over its 18 year operation.
