Hydro-Quebec Partners with First Nations, Municipalities on Wind Power


Hydro-Québec has presented its Action Plan 2035 utility-scale wind power strategy, developed in partnership with First Nations and municipalities.  

The strategy seeks to roll out 10,000 MW of new generation, and include active participation by municipalities and First Nations, with Hydro-Québec acting as shareholder and maître-d’oeuvre for the overall planning and development of large-scale projects. 

“We’ve been listening, and we believe that by leveraging our role as a public institution, our strategy will help us, with our partners, reach the ambitious target of 10,000 MW,” says Michael Sabia, president and CEO of Hydro-Québec. 

“The fundamental goal of our approach is to ensure that public, private, union and community efforts are well coordinated, for the benefit of all Quebecers. We believe that this strategy is the best way to develop wind power in a socially acceptable way, and at the lowest possible cost.”  

Calls for tender will continue to be Hydro-Québec’s preferred approach for smaller-scale projects, with industry partners set to participate in those with an installed capacity of up to 350 MW.
