Boralex Inc.’s Moose Lake wind farm has begun operations in British Columbia.
The 15 MW, four-turbine project is located on Crown land approximately 24 kilometers northwest of Tumbler Ridge, B.C. It was developed in partnership with Aeolis Wind Power Corp., West Moberly First Nations, Saulteau First Nations and McLeod Lake Indian Bend.
The wind farm is covered by a 40-year power purchase agreement with BC Hydro. The power production is estimated at more than 58,000 MWh, which will meet the power needs of nearly 5,370 households.
“Moose Lake is our first wind farm in British Columbia,” notes Patrick Lemaire, president and CEO of Boralex. “This commissioning allows us to diversify our asset base in the province and also brings us closer to our target of 2,000 MW by 2020.”
This commissioning brings Boralex’s installed capacity in Canada, France and the U.S. to 1,977 MW.
