Quebec Community Wind Projects 2012

By Paul Gipe


In a colloquium at the 2012 Husum wind conference, there was a brief report on the progress of community wind in Quebec. By a rather loose definition of “community wind” to include municipal utilities and municipal participation with private developers, Quebec has assigned 294 MW in eleven projects, including one First Nation. The average tariff for the nearly 300 MW of projects is $0.125 CAD per kWh.
