Project AYERS-2

The Ayers-2 generating station is located on the Rivière-du-Nord in Lachute, Quebec. In combination with the Ayers-1 plant, which is about one kilometer downstream, it benefits from a power purchase agreement with Hydro-Québec Production for several years. Originally, the plant, built in the late 1800s, served as a pumping station for the Ayers family’s industrial activities. It was converted into a hydroelectric power station in 1992 following a major refurbishment as part of the APR-91 program.
