Pattern Energy recently signed a significant Power Purchase Agreement for the Broughton Wind project in Québec, marking a major milestone in the renewable energy sector. This project, which is a joint venture partnership with local community and First Nations partners, is set to provide clean and renewable electricity to thousands of homes in the region. The 30-year agreement with Hydro-Québec underscores Pattern Energy’s commitment to sustainable energy solutions and partnership with Indigenous communities.

Overview of the Broughton Wind Project

The Broughton Wind project, a 150-megawatt initiative located in Saint-Pierre-de-Broughton, Sacré-Coeur-de-Jésus, and Thetford Mines, is a testament to Pattern Energy’s dedication to expanding renewable energy infrastructure across Canada. This project will not only power homes in Québec but also contribute to the economic development of the region by creating job opportunities and fostering partnerships with local communities and Indigenous groups.

Collaboration with Indigenous Partners

One of the key highlights of the Broughton Wind project is the collaboration between Pattern Energy and a coalition of community and First Nations partners, including the MRC des Appalaches, MRC de l’ Érable, Conseil des Abenakis d’Odanak, and Conseil des Abenakis de Wolinak. This joint venture aims to bring sustainable energy solutions while generating economic benefits for participating communities.

Economic Impact and Job Creation

The investment of approximately CAD $500 million in the Broughton Wind project is expected to have a lasting economic impact on the region. With the creation of up to 200 jobs during the construction phase and 10 full-time positions once operational, this initiative will contribute to the growth and diversification of the local economy. Pattern Energy’s commitment to job creation and community development is evident in the company’s approach to sustainable energy projects.
