The Mont Sainte-Marguerite Wind facility is located approximately 50 kilometers south of Québec City in the mountainous Chaudière-Appalaches region of Québec.

Community

Construction of Mont Sainte-Marguerite Wind created 200 jobs, and its operations secured 12 permanent placements.  

With a forest of maple trees on our site, local families regularly flock to celebrate the trees’ sugars with music, dance, and taffy pulls. We also sponsor snowmobile trails and toboggan runs in winter, and ATV trails in summer. As many trails traverse our site, we also keep roads clear and safe year-round for local hunters and explorers.

Environment

The region is known for its maple syrup and sugar shacks or “cabanes à sucres,” and the facility site is no exception—the turbines are surrounded by producing maple trees on private land.

Technology

The 147 MW project began construction in early 2017 and reached commercial operations in early 2018. The project consists of 46 Siemens 3.2 MW direct-drive wind turbines. The project has a power purchase agreement with Hydro-Québec.
