Hydro-Quebec roundup

March 3: Hydro-Quebec, following Ontario and New Brunswick, raises the price per kwh it will pay to third-party developers of small-scale wind projects.

March 13: Hydro-Quebec acquires AbitibiBowater's interest in the McCormick station in Baie-Comeau, the old-fashioned way.

March 18: Hydro-Quebec seeks regulatory approval to replace isolated diesel generation in the coastal community of La Romaine* by connecting it to the grid via Natashquan.

March 21: The Innu of Ekuanitshit (Mingan) join three other bands in granting their approval to the La Romaine* project.


* Despite the apparent (and etymological) similarity of name, the community of La Romaine is not located near the La Romaine River. This map from Hydro-Quebec's environmental filings show the project location relative to the Innu communities on the North Shore.

Good luck with getting the Innu on side in Labrador or the Innuit or the Metis.
