Quebec government approves 109 MW Carleton plant

Cartier Wind Energy has received provincial government approval for its C$170 million, 109.5 MW Carleton wind farm in Quebec's Gaspésie region. The approval comes after what Cartier calls a "thorough environmental assessment process" and will allow the company to begin construction once all local permits and approvals are obtained. The project, using 73 GE Energy 1.5 MW turbines, is expected to be on line in December 2008. Cartier, owned 62% by Calgary-based TransCanada Corporation and 38% by Quebec's Innergex II, won contracts for seven projects at six sites in Hydro-Québec's first wind energy call for tenders in 2004. Carleton is the third to be developed. The 109.5 MW Baie-des-Sables project is operating and the 100.5 MW L'Anse-à-Valleau project is under construction.
