111. A regional county municipality may operate, alone or with another person, an enterprise that produces electricity at a wind farm or at a hydro-electric power plant.
In the case of a hydro-electric power plant, the enterprise must be controlled by the regional county municipality. However, if the regional county municipality operates the enterprise with a local municipality or a band council within the meaning of the Indian Act (R.S.C. 1985, c. I-5) or the Cree-Naskapi (of Quebec) Act (S.C. 1984, c. 18), the enterprise may be controlled by one or more of those operators.
If the enterprise is operated jointly under the first paragraph with another municipality or a band council, it need not be operated in the territory of all of those operators.
