On May 5th 2008, Boralex inc. and Gaz Métro Limited Parnership (the “Consortium”) were pleased to announce that two of their proposed wind power projects of a total capacity of 272 megawatts, were selected following a call for tenders by Hydro-Québec.
On July 8th, 2009, the Consortium successfully completed the key step of environmental approval by obtaining the environmental decree from the Ministery of Natural Resources and Wildlife. It is the first decree to be awarded to a project under the latest Hydro-Québec call for tenders.
These two wind farms, located on the private property of Séminaire de Québec, will be operational by the end of 2013 at the latest. The Seigneurie de Beaupré land, where the Consortium's projects will be located, gives them distinctive advantages, including exceptional wind fields.
