April 10 (Renewables Now) - Boralex Inc (TSE:BLX) has commenced commercial operations at its 15-MW Moose Lake wind farm in British Columbia, the Canadian renewables developer said on Tuesday.

Located on Crown land near Tumbler Ridge, the four-turbine plant will operate under a 40-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with utility BC Hydro. Its output is expected to be more than 58,000 MWh per year, or enough to meet the demand of almost 5,370 homes, while offsetting 750 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

The project was developed by Boralex and Aeolis Wind Power Corp under BC Hydro's standing offer programme. Boralex and Aeolis own 70% and 30% stakes, respectively.

Following the wind farm’s commissioning, Boralex said it is very close to reaching its 2,000-MW capacity target earlier than planned in 2020. The Canadian firm’s installed capacity in Canada, France and the US now stands at 1,977 MW.
