Renewable energy developer Boralex announced that four of its projects have been selected in the latest round of renewable tender calls conducted by the French Ministry for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition.
Boralex’s projects that have been selected include two solar and two wind farm projects, totaling 70.4MW.

Boralex Europe vice president and general manager Nicolas Wolff said: “This success confirms that Boralex develops competitive projects, but also points out the vitality of solar power, a sector for which we have ambitious goals in France and in North America.
“For 20 years we have made a conscious effort to situate our projects locally, so that they promote jobs and economic benefits while allowing communities to fully engage with their objectives for the energy transition.”
The four projects are supported by the government to secure feed-in agreements
Boralex stated that the four projects have received the necessary administrative authorisations and will enable it to receive a feed-in agreement for a period of 20 years from the date of commissioning.
