In October of 2014, Nigig Power Corporation entered into a joint venture partnership with Pattern Canada to jointly develop, own and operate the 300 MW Henvey Inlet Wind project and associated transmission line.

Nigig Power Corporation

Nigig Power Corporation (Nigig) was established in 2010 and is wholly owned by Henvey Inlet First Nation. Nigig secured the largest Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) contract in Ontario and is constructing the largest First Nation wind energy centre in Canada. The Henvey Inlet Wind Energy Centre (HIWEC) has a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement with the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO).

Henvey Inlet First Nation is an Anishinabek community comprised of three separate reserve properties. Henvey Inlet Reserve No. 2 is on the northeast shore of the Georgian Bay, 90 km south of Sudbury and 71 km north of Parry Sound. French River Reserve No.13 is 11 km north of the Reserve No. 2 and includes Cantin Island. There are about 900 enrolled Members of the Robinson- Huron Treaty band, with approximately 200 of those residing on-Reserve.

Pattern Canada

Pattern Canada is dedicated to the production of clean, renewable energy – by Canadians and for Canadians. Pattern Canada represents what we do in the country at Pattern Energy, a public company that owns and operates renewable energy facilities (TSX: PEGI), and at Pattern Development, a leading developer of renewable energy and transmission assets.

Combined, we have experience at all stages of project management: wind resource analysis, development, power marketing, finance, construction, operations and asset management. Our mission is to transition the world to renewable energy by developing and operating high-quality projects with respect for communities and in an environmentally responsible manner.
As the country’s largest operator of wind power with more than 1,500 MW of installed capacity, our team has brought nine wind facilities to operation across four provinces, and we are currently constructing the largest First Nation wind project in the country.

We are proud of our coast-to-coast Canadian roots and the results of our work in the country over the past decade. We look forward to providing lasting benefits to the communities, families, and workers involved in all of our existing and future renewable energy facilities.
