Boralex plans 100 MW Ontario bid

Montreal's Boralex Inc has acquired the rights to a 100 MW wind project in Ontario that it plans to bid into the province's upcoming request for proposals for 500 MW of renewable energy. Boralex bought the project from Gengrowth, a privately-owned renewable energy company based in Toronto that will continue as a project development partner. This is the second time the two companies have worked together. In 2007, Boralex bought the rights to nine 10 MW wind projects from Gengrowth, all located near Windsor in southern Ontario and with contracts under the province's program of standard price offers for the purchase of electricity from smaller wind plant. Construction is expected to start on three of them this fall once municipal permits are finalised. So far, all of Boralex's wind plant activity is in France, where it has 103 MW of installed capacity. In May, however, Boralex and its partner in Canada, Gaz Métro Limited Partnership, were awarded contracts for two wind farms totalling 272 MW in Hydro-Quebec's call for 2000 MW of wind.
