About

Mesgi’g Ugju’s’n Wind Farm

The Mesgi’g Ugju's’n wind farm, which means "big wind" in Mi'gmaq, utilizes a source of renewable energy, while also helping to consolidate its communal membership's belonging to the territory.

Wind energy projects are typically large-scale projects that require significant investment and planning. Operating a wind energy project requires a team of skilled workers, which currently includes12 employees.
 

The project is comprised of 47 wind turbines for a total capacity of 150 MW. It also includes access roads, a collector system connecting each wind turbine to a collector substation and an operations building. The proposed layout was designed to maximise the wind energy potential of this sector, while taking into account the quality of the wind resource and the various technical, regulatory and environmental (physical, biological and human) configuration parameters.
