(CHATHAM, ON) – Randy Hope, the mayor of Chatham-Kent, has been honoured with the Canadian Wind Energy Association’s 2017 CanWEA Award for being a Friend of Wind. The awards program is designed to honour industry leaders, innovators, and supporters for exceptional work on behalf of wind energy.

Hope, who was first elected mayor in 2006, has shown a commitment to sustainable economic development and job creation. This, says CanWEA, has made his municipality a wind energy leader.

Currently the city earns $2.3 million in local taxes generated from green energy projects, as well as millions more through landowner lease payments and contributions to community benefit agreements.

The efforts of Hope and Chatham-Kent’s Economic Development Services to attract green businesses to the area, says CanWEA, “… has helped bring new jobs, investment, and economic diversification to the region.”
