In Québec, the use of wind power is facilitated by the presence of hydropower generating stations that can start up instantly, compensating for the intermittence of wind. We buy wind power from independent producers and feed it reliably into our grid.

Wind power is one of the solutions being considered for switching off-grid systems to other energy sources.
