Description

The Carleton wind farm entered operation in November 2008. With a capacity of 109.5 MW and including 73 wind turbines, this wind park is located entirely on public land. The Carleton wind farm straddles two municipalities: the town of Carleton-sur-Mer and the unorganized territory of the Bonaventure RCM.

During construction, all economic sectors in the Baie-des-Chaleurs region came into play. Over 83 % of the workforce on the construction site consisted of residents of Gaspésie and the Matane RCM. In all, 600 workers contributed to the success of this wind park.

Investments

Over the Carleton wind farm’s 20 years of operations, Cartier Wind Energy will pay the town of Carleton-sur-Mer and the Bonaventure RCM over $2,900,000. These voluntary contributions are based on the capacity installed on town or RCM territory. Cartier will pay $1000 per megawatt (MW) installed at the time of the 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’s and the RCM’s jurisdiction.

Furthermore, Cartier will establish a visibility fund of $30,000 for the municipalities to assist local non-profit organizations.
