EDF EN Canada Inc., a subsidiary of EDF Energies Nouvelles, began commercial operations at the 150 MW Massif du Sud Wind Project, the 150 MW first phase of the Lac Alfred Wind Project, both in Quebec. Both projects will use 75 wind turbines supplied by REpower.
Hydro-Quebec is buying the output from the farms through 20-year power purchase agreements.
The projects represent the second and third wind energy projects of the seven awarded in 2008 and 2010 to EDF Energies Nouvelles in Canada. The 80 MW Saint-Robert-Bellamin wind plant was commissioned in October 2012.
