KEMONT will invest a total of some $300,000,000 in the wind farm project, of which $20 to $35 million will be spent directly in the region. Approximately $250,000 will be paid out annually to the municipalities over twenty years, for a total of about $5 million.
Landowners who have granted options for the installation of wind turbines on their property will share more than $600,000 annually, for twenty years.
Construction of the Montérégie Wind Farm Project will also generate other local benefits. Although those benefits are difficult to estimate precisely, the project will have a positive impact on the local economy: hotels and motels in the region, restaurants, convenience stores, gas stations, etc.
