Another legislator, US Congressman Chris Collins, is expected to announce federal action to stymie the Lake Erie project on a federal level.

Under the VPPAs, which the company expects to commence later this year, Toyota NA will contract with renewable energy providers to generate wind and solar power that will be provided directly to regional electric grids. The supply of renewable power is expected to reduce use of fossil fuels and emissions. By powering its operations from the enhanced grid and applying Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) earned by funding the generation of renewable electricity, Toyota expects to substantially offset emissions from its North American facilities. This VPPA endeavor supports the company's Environmental Challenge 2050 which sets out the following global objectives:
The six sites -- Courselles-sur-Mer, Fecamp, Saint-Nazaire, Iles d'Yeu / Noirmoutier, Dieppe / Le Treport and Saint-Brieuc -- are located in French territorial waters off the North-Western coast of France. Each of the wind farms will incorporate 62 to 83 turbines with an installed capacity of 450 to 498 MW per farm and will receive support in the form of feed-in tariffs over a period of 20 years.
Construction of the first of the six wind farms is slated to begin construction this year for completion and commissioning in 2022. Once finalised, the wind farms will increase France's renewables generation capacity by about three gigawatts.
