Boralex and Aeolis Wind Power Corporation announced that the Moose Lake Wind Project will begin on July 18.

The project, located 24 kilometres 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 M 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.

Boralex develops, builds and operates renewable energy power facilities in Canada, France and the US.
