Up until now, Quebec's hydroelectric production has mostly been associated with very large scale projects like the James Bay and Manicouagan dams. At the other extreme, the Quebec government has left the operation of small installations, 50 megawatts (MW) or less, to the private sector, which is experiencing increasing success at that level. However, an important portion of Quebec's hydroelectric potential remains unexploited: that of medium scale projects.
