Pair of northern Quebec communities look to wind power

A proposed joint Inuit-Cree project is looking to the wind to meet a pair of northern Quebec communities’ energy needs.

The Nunavik community of Kuujjuaraapik shares its town site with the neighbouring Cree community of Whapmagoostui.

In 2011, the twinned communities decided to look at wind energy as an option to help power the two communities, which have a joint population of about 1,700.
