Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. has submitted eight wind farm development projects, in partnership with local organizations and municipalities, for consideration by Hydro-Quebec Distribution.
These new wind energy projects were submitted in response to a call for tenders issued by Hydro-Quebec Distribution for the purchase of 250 MW resulting from community projects, and represent 24.6 MW in potential installed capacity each, with in-service dates beginning in December 2013.
Municipalities or local organizations will hold interests of between 30% and 50% of the respective wind farm projects, which will be located in eight different municipalities.
Hydro-Quebec Distribution made the public bid opening today, and expects to announce the bids that have been selected by the end of this year.
