Kruger was presented with the award in recognition of its 100MW wind farm, which is located in five Montérégie municipalities: Saint-Isidore, Saint-Rémi, Saint-Michel, Saint-Constant and Mercier.
“This Conscientia Award is not only a testament to Kruger Energy’s efforts to ensure the project’s social acceptability, but also a nod to all stakeholders in the region who worked with us to ensure that the Montérégie Wind Farm meets the community’s expectations and has a positive economic, social and environmental impact on all residents,” said Jean Roy, senior vice-president and COO, Kruger Energy.
Kruger Energy is a business unit of Kruger Inc.; the two entities own and operate 34 production sites, ranging from hydroelectric and wind power plants to biomass cogeneration and biogas plants.
