FOR YOU,IN CONTACT WITH THE WIND
Wind energy is an indefinitely renewable, sustainable and clean energy. It does not require any fuel, does not great greenhouse gases and does not produce toxic or radioactive waste. Fighting against climate change, wind energy contributes in the long term to maintaining the biodiversity of natural environments.
WIND ENERGYHOW IT WORKS
Wind turbines are a very old form of wind exploitation. However, their operating principles will not be established before the beginning of the 20th century. It will be necessary to wait the years 1970-2000 to see the development of current wind turbines, with an important evolution both in their use around the world, in their size, their power and in their design. We have thus moved from the small isolated machine for pumping water to large fleets of multi-megawatt wind generators connected to a network.
ENERGY IS OUR FUTURE
Founded in 2008, the consortium Saint-Laurent Énergies (Hydromega, EDF EN & RES Canada) is chosen to build and operate 954 MW within 5 projects in the province of Quebec, this being almost half of the 2004 MW bought
The five selected projects are located int different regions such as Chaudière-Appalaches (150MW), in the National Capitol region (74MW), in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean (350MW), the Lower St-Lawrence region (300MW) and in Minganie (90MW).
In March 2010, Hydromega decided to leave the consortium to concentrate its energies on the development of its other projects.
