Lamèque

English

Located on Lamèque Island in northeastern NB, this wind power plant covers roughly 3,100 acres.  The concept of a wind power station in the local area was initially conceived by the community-based Lamèque Renewable Energy Cooperative.

Development of the site involved 68 separate landowners, who took part in the project through long term lease agreements. The plant began operations in 2011 and includes thirty 1.5 MW turbines with a total generating capacity of 45 megawatts. 

Lamèque Wind Power is wholly-owned and operated by Acciona Energy North America. The company has a long term agreement with NB Power to purchase all the electricity produced at the facility.
