Gatineau, Quebec-based Brookfield Renewable Power, a private owner-operator of renewable energy facilities, is establishing its U.S. operating headquarters in Marlborough, Mass. The company plans to create at least 100 new jobs at the new headquarters over the next 18 months.

"In our conversations with Gov. [Deval] Patrick and his administration, it became clear that Massachusetts is very serious about attracting and supporting renewable energy companies," says Richard Legault, Brookfield's president and co-CEO. "We are very optimistic about our future in Massachusetts and are confident that state government is going to do its part to create a positive environment in which to do business."

Brookfield's Marlborough office will house the executives, accounting and finance departments for the company's U.S. operations. In addition, it is the company's intention to centralize its U.S. systems control function in Marlborough. Using advanced technologies, the systems control center would dispatch all of the electricity from the company's U.S. power projects.
