MONTREAL—Boralex Inc. has commissioned its Témiscouata II wind power project, in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region of Quebec. The project has an installed capacity of 51.7 megawatts and employed 200 workers at peak construction.

The wind farm is covered by a 20-year contract with Hydro-Québec and pumped approximately $30 million into the Bas-Saint-Laurent region during construction.
The project is adjacent to the Témiscouata I community wind farm on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River in Eastern Quebec.
