EDF EN Canada Inc., a subsidiary of EDF Energies Nouvelles, has announced the commercial operation of the Massif du Sud Wind Project (150 MW) and the first phase of the Lac Alfred Wind Project (150 MW), both located in Quebec.

Massif du Sud and Lac Alfred represent two of the seven wind energy projects in total awarded to the company in 2008 and 2010 through Hydro-Quebec Distribution calls for tenders. By the end of 2015, EDF EN Canada  says it will have developed and built a total of approximately 1 GW in the province.

EDF EN Canada Inc.'s operation and maintenance affiliate, EDF Renewable Services Canada Inc., will provide long-term operations and maintenance services. Hydro-Quebec will buy the power under 20-year power purchase agreements.

“Throughout the 20-year contract with Hydro-Quebec, the municipalities concerned by these projects will receive a combined annual contribution of over $600,000,” says Alex Couture, project development director for EDF EN Canada.
