Innergex Renewable Energy and the Mi'gmawei Mawiomi First Nation of Quebec have concluded a partnership agreement for the development, financing, construction and operation of a 150 MW wind farm, located on the Gasper Peninsula of Quebec.

The agreement corresponds with Quebec's recent call for tenders, and the developer intends to apply as soon as possible.

‘This project not only aims to produce renewable energy and consolidate the wind industry of Gaspe, it also constitutes a powerful leverage for the emancipation and the long-term socio economic development of the three Mi'gmaq communities of Gaspé," says Chief Claude Jeannotte, chairperson of the Mi'gmawei Mawiomi. ‘This project could mark the beginning of a new era of prosperity for the Mi'gmaq of Quebec.’
