Community energy

The associate of community energy represents the way of the future to ensure the long-term development of many Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Persons who prefer to hold their destiny in their own hands They have the advantage of allowing the reconciliation of environmental, social and economic aspects in relation to sustainable development.

Exploitation of the collective energy resources by private companies who benefit from secured governmental sales contracts and other state companies has been gradually challenged by the proponents of sustainable development in recent years. This approach also caused less adhesion within the project-affected populations.

Still faced with the reality of having to meet the growing demand for energy, many countries and provinces around the world have already positioned themselves to promote the establishment of programs to purchase energy from renewable sources and those developed by community promoters. This trend is now well established and demands an opportunity to reduce their dependence on fossil fuel energy sources.

At a time not so long ago, when the project-affected communities in their territory were still content with minimal compensation or royalties, Pekuakamiulnuatsh Takuhikan did not succumb to the easy way that conflicts with the values of the Aboriginal community and their long-term interests.
 

  • After the first project, the Minashtuk small hydroelectric station, produced toward the end of the 1990's, in partnership with the Société d’état Hydro-Québec, Pekuakamiulnuatsh Takuhikan allied the RCM of Domaine-du-Roy and Maria-Chapdelaine within the Société de l’Énergie Communautaire du Lac-Saint-Jean. A single unique partnership in Quebec that was created in 2007 for the production of the small hydroelectric stations in Val-Jalbert and the 11th falls of the Mistassini River.
     
  • It was this same experience, this credibility and this competency recognized by government authorities in community energy that Pek offers.
