WCN Editorial Team 21 Jun 2016 NORTH AMERICA ENERGY & UTILITIES

EDF Energies Nouvelles subsidiary EDF EN Canada and MD1 Wind have dedicated the 74MW Mont Rothery wind project in Quebec, Canada.


The project includes 37 wind turbines, which will generate clean electricity to meet the needs of about 15,000 Quebec homes.

The $175M wind farm has created over 200 jobs during the peak construction period and approximately seven permanent operation and maintenance jobs.

Construction on the project started in October 2014 and reached commercial operation in December 2015.

EDF EN Canada’s director of generation Alex Couture said: “In addition to the $11M of local economic impact generated by the project during construction, the two MRCs concerned by the project and the city of Murdochville will share a total contribution of over $4M during the operational phase.”
