Chatham-Kent's Mayor Receives National Wind Energy Award

Randy Hope has been presented with the national Friend of Wind award.

It was presented (Tuesday) at the spring Canadian Wind Energy Association meeting in Quebec.

The award recognizes his efforts in developing wind energy and making Chatham-Kent a provincial and national leader in renewable energy.

The mayor said the award represents Chatham-Kent's forward thinking in recognizing the need for renewable energy.

Hope challenged industry members at the awards ceremony to consider establishing a national renewable energy research and development centre in Chatham.
