Montreal-based Boralex Inc. has acquired the rights for a wind project with a potential installed capacity of 100 MW in Ontario.

This wind power project, located in the municipality of Chatham-Kent, will be submitted into the Ontario Power Authority's anticipated request for proposal III for 500 MW of renewable energy supply.

"This strategic acquisition allows Boralex to reinforce its presence in Canada, principally in a region favorable to the production of renewable energy, and in a sector where its expertise is recognized," says Patrick Lemaire, president and CEO of Boralex.

This wind power site was developed by Gengrowth, which will continue to work with Boralex on the project.
