Les Jardins


The proposed wind farm project would help meet Québec’s energy needs and help the government reach its 2030 reduction targets for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Kruger Energy is initiating the development of a wind project. The project is currently in the initial planning phase and will evolve based on environmental studies and regulatory requirements and in consultation with local stakeholders and communities.

The presentation during the public meetings will only be done in French.

With all its projects, Kruger Energy is committed to

  • Being a good neighbour
  • Respecting the goals of local communities
  • Prioritizing sustainable development and environmental protection

The environmental impact assessment for the project will characterize every aspect of the environment where the wind project would be installed, including the physical, biological and human environment. The results of the study will be published and will be the subject to public consultations.

Project Location

The project is located across four municipalities in Jardins-de-Napierville Regional County Municipality (RCM): Saint-Patrice-de-Sherrington, Saint-Édouard, Saint-Michel, and Hemmingford.

Questions and Answers

  • The current configuration will include 7 to 11 wind turbines in Saint-Édouard. The exact number of wind turbines will depend on the wind turbine model chosen, among other factors.

  • Projects are not necessarily cheaper on public land than private land. The majority of a wind project’s costs comes from wind turbines, as well as their installation and transportation. The further away a project is, the greater the cost of transporting components, equipment, materials and workers to the site. In addition, transportation costs and power losses are greater when projects are further away from consumption centres.

  • The wind farm project area’s regional location is largely driven by wind quality and a positive perspective toward wind energy in the regional county municipality’s (RCM) planning and development schedule (RPDS).

Land Use

Kruger Energy has possesses significant experience in developping wind projects in agricultural areas, with a focus on reusing existing infrastructures and avoiding sensitive areas to minimize the impact on cultivated land. A wind turbine only takes up an area of about 30 m by 30 m.

Economic Impact

The payout to municipalities is expected to total approximately $700,000 per year. Projected indirect benefits in the region include the creation of jobs and payments to participating landowners. The communities also have the opportunity to be involved as an investment partner.

Noise Levels

The project will comply with existing regulations that set the maximum allowable noise level in rural areas (outside of dwellings) at 40 dBA. The turbines will also be installed at a minimum distance of 750 metres from all dwellings. The project layout and the results of noise level studies will be shared during future public consultations.

Visual Impact

The visual simulations prepared as part of the project impact study will provide an accurate representation of the environmental impact Study and will be used to identify appropriate mitigation measures.


The safety of our infrastructures is a core value and is critical to our long-term success.
