Wind energy in the air
To create a more responsible energy future, it’s in Québec’s best interest to diversify its energy portfolio. Wind energy alongside hydroelectricity, solar energy and renewable natural gas is part of the solution.
Where the wind blows!
Énergir is among a number of companies actively contributing to the growth of wind energy by developing farms in Québec and Vermont through its U.S. subsidiary Green Mountain Power (GMP).
In Québec, Énergir and Boralex co-own one of Canada’s largest clusters of wind farms located in the Seigneurie de Beaupré, east of Québec City. This farm counts no fewer than 154 wind turbines with a capacity of 340 MW, generating enough electricity to serve more than 65,000 Québec homes annually!
Our subsidiary, GMP, also operates two wind farms in Vermont. In total, these facilities generate enough electricity to power around 26,000 homes, positioning the company as Vermont’s leading wind energy producer.
