With a 226 megawatt capacity, the Paugan Dam has the second greatest capacity of any dam in the Outaouais. This "run of the river" dam is part of Hydro-Quebec's vast energy infrastructure. Hydro-Québec, a provincially owned corporation based in Montréal, is Canada's largest utility corporation. The farm will be powered entirely by one of the cleanest and most reliable energy sources in the world. The watershed of the region will provide the farm with irrigation needs, and NORTHBUD will give back with a state-of-the-art water recycling facility.
