Innergex plans 210-MW wind farm in British Columbia
Dec 18, 2013 - Canadian firm Innergex Renewable Energy Inc (TSE:INE) on Tuesday unveiled a letter of intent (LOI) with the Saik'uz First Nation in British Columbia for the construction of a 210-MW wind farm on their territory.
The partners have also signed a traditional knowledge protocol agreement for the development of the project at Nulki Hills near Vanderhoof. Innergex and Saik'uz First Nation now need an environmental assessment certificate from British Columbia and a power purchase agreement for the plant’s output with BC Hydro.
The Nulki Hills wind power facility can start generating electricity by late 2018.
Last month, Innergex said it had put on stream its 24.6-MW Viger-Denonville wind park in Quebec. Featuring 12 turbines, the installation will be able to generate 67,600 MWh of power each year, enough to supply about 4,000 local homes. Its output will be sold under a 20-year fixed-price power purchase agreement (PPA) with Hydro-Quebec.
