The Anse-à-Valleau wind farm is located in the town of Gaspé and entered operation in November 2007.
This wind farm, with a capacity of 100.5 MW and including 67 wind turbines, was the second wind farm developed by Cartier Wind Energy. It is primarily located on public land, but also includes a few wind turbines on private property.
Over the 20 years of Anse-à-Valleau wind farm operations, Cartier Wind Energy will pay the town of Gaspé over $2,710,500 based on the wind park’s installed capacity. Cartier will pay $1000 per megawatt (MW) installed at the time of the wind farm’s construction, and will continue to pay the same amount annually over the 20 years of the wind farm’s operation. These funds may be expended on areas within the town of Gaspé’s jurisdiction.
Furthermore, Cartier will provide a visibility fund of $27,500 to the town of Gaspé to assist local non-profit organizations.
