Capital Power's Kingsbridge I Wind Power Project was developed by EPCOR Power Development Corporation on 1,000 hectares of farmland optioned for wind power development within the Township of Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh, near the community of Goderich in Huron County.

The project, which has a nameplate capacity of 39.6 MW, utilizes 22 Vestas wind turbines installed over two sites. The northern site, which consists of 12 turbines, is located east of Kingsbridge and Port Albert. The remaining 10 turbines were installed at the southern site located east of Highway 21 and south of Nile Road. Each turbine has a rated capacity of 1,800 kilowatts.

Over 30 kilometres of 27.6 kV overhead lines connect the wind farm to the Goderich Transformer Station owned by Hydro One and feed into the Ontario electricity market that is administered by the Independent Electricity System Operator.

It is estimated the wind farm will generate over 109,000 megawatt-hours of renewable energy per year.
