EDF EN Canada signs purchase agreements for 49.2 MW of wind energy

Montreal, March 25, 2011 — EDF EN Canada, an EDF Energies Nouvelles Co., signed two 20-year power purchase agreements with Hydro-Quebec for wind energy projects totaling 49.2 MW.

EDF EN Canada Inc. has joined with MRC du Granit and MRC de la Mitis for the development of two 24.6 MW wind projects, respectively. Hydro-Quebec awarded the projects in December 2010 as a result of the 2009 Hydro-Quebec call for tenders, which was focused on community projects. Both projects will use the REpower 2.05 MW turbine with anticipation of electricity delivered in late 2014.

EDF EN Canada Inc. now has over 1 GW of wind energy in development in Quebec, including five wind projects totaling 954 MW, which were won in the 2007 Hydro-Quebec RFP. Construction of the first of these five projects is expected to commence in the second half of 2011 with operations between 2012 and 2015.

The PPAs are subject to approval by the Quebec Energy Board. Construction will commence following the obtainment of all required governmental and municipal permits, approvals and environmental authorizations.
