The Underwood Wind Farm (Enbridge Ontario Wind Farm) is a wind farm located in Bruce County, Ontario, near the shores of Lake Huron. It was developed by Enbridge Inc., a Canadian corporation better known for involvement in fossil fuels and their distribution.

The farm consists of 110 Vestas V82 wind turbines, each rated at 1.65MW, for a total nameplate capacity of 181.5MW. The project includes a substation to step up the power generated by the turbines to 230kV for transmission.

The Enbridge Ontario Wind Farm is not the only energy development in the area; Bruce County also boasts the Huron Wind wind farm, and the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station.
