Winds of change blow in Lac-Mégantic
This is a story of community-led renewable energy replacing fossil fuels — a story of hope rising from the ashes.
Many Canadians first heard of Lac-Mégantic on July 6, 2013, when a freight train carrying crude oil derailed, exploded in the city and killed 47 people. Now, the community is leading the transition to renewables with the most profitable community co-owned wind farm in Eastern Canada.
