A complementary resource
Ensuring that different energies and sources of energy complement one another is a solution that supports the reduction of greenhouse gas. Wind power is a renewable energy, just like hydroelectricity, solar energy and renewable natural gas.
Québec counts 43 sites with wind turbines which produce 3,256 MW of electricity.* The first wind turbines appeared in Cap Chat in 1999. Wind is particularly strong in Québec, even more so in winter, which makes it a territory well suited for the production of wind power.
Locally produced and renewable, wind power emits no pollution when it is transformed into electrical energy, since it requires no fuel.
