With several local dignitaries in attendance, the developer consortium behind Quebec's 272 MW group of Seigneurie de Beaupre wind farms - one of Canada's largest - reports that the project has officially opened.

According to Boralex, dignitaries included Jacques Roberge, general superior of the Seminaire de Quebec, and Caroline Simard, member of the Charlevoix-Cote-de-Beaupre, representing the Quebec's Minister of Energy and Natural Resources as well as company officials and other invited guests.

According to Boralex, the wind farm has been supplying power to the Quebec grid since last December. Additionally, the company notes a 68 MW second phase of the project is expected to be commissioned later this year with the 25 MW community project anticipated to come online in 2015. Once completed, the Seigneurie de Beaupre development will be one of Canada's largest wind farms.
