$70 million, 15-megawatt site in central B.C. will house four turbines
TUMBLER RIDGE—Quebec renewable developer Boralex Inc. has announced it is preparing to start work on a 15 megawatt wind energy project in east-central British Columbia.
The Kingsey Falls, Que.-based company and Aeolis Wind Power Corp. are planning to begin construction on the $70 million Moose Lake Wind Project next week.
Located two dozen kilometres outside of Tumbler Ridge, B.C.—a small town in the foothills of the Rocky Mountain—the project includes the construction of four turbines.
The renewable energy project is expected to create 40 jobs during the one-year construction phase. Once completed, it will sell its power to BC Hydro after receiving a power purchase agreement last year.
