The Montagne Sèche wind farm, in the Municipality of the Township of Cloridorme, Québec, has begun commercial operation on November 25, 2011. The wind farm is a 58.5 MW facility with an estimated yearly output of 193,400 MWh.
Pursuant to the terms of a power purchase agreement signed with Hydro-Québec, this utility has committed to buy all of the electricity generated at this facility, for a period of 20 years, as of the start of commercial operation. Electricity pricing is set in the contract and adjusted yearly, on the basis primarily of the consumer price index.
Innergex’s partner in this project is TransCanada. Innergex holds a 38% interest in this wind farm and a 50% stake in Cartier énergie éolienne, the management entity that oversees all aspects of its development, construction, and operation.
