Construction of the Moose Lake Wind Project, developed by Boralex Inc. and Aeolis Wind Power Corporation, will commence July 18, 2016. The project, 24 km north-west of Tumbler Ridge near Highway 29, will have 4 turbines with a total capacity of 15 MW and will create approximately 40 jobs during its one-year construction phase.
The Moose Lake Wind Project, which represents a $70 million investment, completed an environmental impact assessment and received a General Area Licence of Occupation in September 2014. The Project subsequently received a Standing Offer Program Electricity Purchase Agreement from BC Hydro in December 2015. For more on the project: http://www.boralex.com/projects/mooselake

A leader in the Canadian market and France’s largest independent producer of onshore wind power, the corporation is recognized for its experience in optimizing its asset base in four power sources — wind, hydroelectric, thermal and solar.
