Kingston Solar LP Community Benefit Fund

The City of Kingston wants your feedback on how to allocate the proceeds from the Kingston Solar LP (Samsung) Renewal Energy Project Community Benefit Program Fund.

Use of the funds approved by Council fall under the following three categories:

  1. Planting trees in the public right-of-way and on private properties in the area of the Kingston Solar LP (Samsung) properties;
  2. Park improvements in the rural area of Kingston; and
  3. Acquisition of parkland/natural lands in the rural area of Kingston.

The fund is part of an agreement with Kingston Solar LP (Samsung), which is contributing $1,250 per megawatt (MW) of power produced by their project to the City of Kingston over the next 20 years. The first payment made to the Community Benefit Fund, for 2015 and all of 2016, was in the amount of $116,449.32.

The 2015 and 2016 funds were used to fund the planting of approximately 2,000 trees on private property within the vicinity of the Kingston Solar LP properties. Funds were also used to replace the outdoor play structure, plant trees and build a new shade structure at Elginburg Public School, in partnership with the Limestone District School Board.
