The Baie-des-Sables Wind Energy Project, completed by Longueuil, Quebec-based Cartier Wind Energy, has been selected to receive more than C$31 million over 10 years through the Canadian government's ecoENERGY for Renewable Power initiative.

The Baie-des-Sables Wind Energy Project comprises 73 GE 1.5 MW turbines, with a total capacity of 109.5 MW. The project is the first of six planned by Cartier Wind Energy. When all the projects are operational, Cartier Wind Energy will be the largest producer of wind power in the province of Quebec, with a capacity of some 740 MW, the company adds.

"Canada must find a balance between energy production and the protection of our health and the environment," says Minister of Natural Resources Gary Lunn, who made the official funding announcement. "Funding for the Baie-des-Sables Wind Energy Project sends a clear signal that our government is committed to increase the supply of clean, renewable energy for Canadians while helping Canada's wind power industry grow."
