Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. and the Riviere-du-Loup Regional County Municipality (RCM) have commissioned the 24.6 MW Viger-Denonville wind farm in Quebec.

Developed by Parc eolien communautaire Viger-Denonville, a joint venture owned 50/50 by Innergex and the RCM, the wind farm comprises 12 REpower wind turbines and is located entirely on private lands in the Quebec municipalities of Saint-Paul-de-la-Croix and Saint-Epiphane. Borea Construction began building the project in the spring and completed it earlier this month.

All of the project's output is covered by a 20-year fixed-price power purchase agreement with Hydro-Quebec obtained under that province’s 2009 request for proposals.
