The Municipality of Frampton and Boralex Inc. (TSX: BLX) on Sept. 8 inaugurated the Frampton community wind farm in the presence of various government and company officials, including Patrick Lemaire, President and CEO of Boralex.
Commissioned in December 2015, the project has 12 wind turbines with a total capacity of 24 MW and will supply electricity to nearly 5,000 Quebec households every year until 2035. It is owned one-third by the municipality and two-thirds by Boralex.
At the inauguration, Lemaire recognized the exceptional collaboration between the project team, the municipality and its citizens.
This is the third community wind farm project commissioned in Quebec by Boralex in less than two years. Boralex develops, builds and operates renewable energy power facilities in Canada, France and the United States.
Boralex separately announced Sept. 8 that it has been selected by the Innu Nation as a partner to develop the 200-MW Apuiat wind farm project located on public land in the municipality of Port-Cartier in Quebec’s Côte-Nord region. For this project, Boralex will partner with Renewable Energy Systems Canada Inc.
