We’re now in the early stages of development so talking with the First Nations, the community, the mayor and council,” said Public Affairs Director Bas Brusche. “We believe this is a very good spot to capture the wind.”

Innergex is proposing to build about 70 turbines and is hoping to begin construction in 2013.

The College of New Caledonia was also in attendance at the trade show, hoping to garner support to renovate their building and expand their education program. They want to engage with industry and employers in all aspects of post-secondary education planning.

Community Futures was another business in attendance.

“We’re involved in small business planning to help get them running,” said Tammy Lyell, Business Analyst. “We’re looking at economic diversification throughout the community. We’ve done a lot of community economic developments as well.”
