The Mesgi’g Ugju’s’n Wind Farm

47 wind turbines / 150 megawatts

The blades and towers were made in Quebec by LM Wind Power in Gaspé and Marmen in Matane, respectively. These turbines are specially designed for the project site and Quebec’s weather conditions

01

Benefits for the Mi'gmaq First Nations

This project will generate profits of approximately $200 million for the Mi’gmaq over a 20-year period.

The project created many jobs for the Mi’gmaq. More than 300 workers engaged in the development and construction of the wind farm, 110 of them being from Mi’gmaq communities.

02

Benefits for the RCM and the municipalities

The project partners have agreed that Innergex will make an annual indexed contribution of $675,000 to the Avignon RCM, and it will set up an indexed social development fund of $75,000 to be paid annually.

What’s more, the project brings additional business to those manufacturers of wind farm components who are already established in the Gaspé Peninsula.

03

Location

The wind turbines are located on public lands in the Avignon Regional County Municipality in Québec, near the Mi’gmaq communities of Gesgapegiag, Gespeg, and Listuguj.
