As president of Innergex and spokesperson for the Coalition for the Promotion of Wind Energy, Lefrancois has been active in public relations, speaking on many occasions on behalf of the wind industry. He also spearheaded the launch of a partnership between Innergex II Inc. and the Federation of Quebec Municipalities."
