The first electric microgrid in Québec
Not only am I the first islandable, neighborhood-sized electric microgrid in Québec, I’m still the only one! With my 2,200 solar panels, storage batteries, smart devices and centralized control system, I’m able to power part of the new Lac-Mégantic downtown core.
I’m like a life‑size, living laboratory. Thanks to me, technologies are being studied that will change the way energy is generated and consumed in Québec in the near future.
You’re probably wondering what an islandable microgrid is. Come see me to find out! You’ll learn everything about my design and construction, and about the buildings that are in the perimeter that I cover.
You’ll see—I’m very discreet! You’ll even have a hard time seeing me. Fortunately, our friendly and dynamic guides will be there to explain and show you where to look to see me. And it’s FREE!
After your tour, you’ll have a very different view of Lac‑Mégantic and of electricity!
