Invenergy, the leading privately held global developer, owner, and operator of sustainable energy solutions, is pleased to confirm today that Hydro-Quebec has selected the Pohénégamook–Picard–Saint-Antonin–Wolastokuk 2 (PPAW 2) wind project to be developed and constructed as part of its A/O 2023-01 tender for the acquisition of wind energy. Developed in equal partnership with Alliance de l’énergie de l’Est, the project will be a significant economic investment that will directly benefit the communities and territories of Eastern Quebec.
Located in Bas-Saint-Laurent, Québec, the PPAW 2 Wind Energy Centre is an investment of approximately 1 billion dollars (CAD).
The 291 megawatt project will produce enough electricity to power the equivalent of more than 40,000 households. It is expected to begin commercial operations in 2029.
“We are proud to deliver another significant project to Hydro-Québec, in support of their ambitious energy goals and to bring more clean energy to the province,” said Louis Robert, Vice President, Renewable Development at Invenergy. “Invenergy deeply values the communities where we develop, work and operate and we look forward to working with Alliance de l’énergie de l’Est, to ensure these projects deliver economic, environmental, and social benefits to the project’s host communities and territories.”
“We have found a trusted partner in Invenergy. We are confident we can work with them to deliver projects tailored to the territory and earn the respect of communities and the people in them. Eastern Quebec, with its wind regimes favourable to wind development, wants to continue its important contribution to building new megawatts, allowing us both to be contribute to Québec’s energy leadership and to ensure the vitality of our territory,” said the president of Alliance de l’énergie de l’Est, Michel Lagacé.
