December 12, 2013 – Yesterday, Boralex Inc., Gaz Métro Ltd. Partnership and Valener Inc. confirm the commercial commissioning of an additional 141MW (64 turbines) to Quebec’s Seigneurie de Beaupré wind farms project, finalizing the first phase of the project, totalling 272MW. When completed, the wind farm is estimated to supply electricity to 50,000 Quebec homes annually.
In November 2013, we reported that the partners began commercial commissioning of the first 131MW (62 turbines) of Phase I of the wind farm.
2014 continues with Phase II, with a capacity of 68 MW, and in 2015 the 25MW community project will complete the wind farm.
