The Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec has made a US$500-million investment in Invenergy Wind LLC, an owner and operator of large-scale renewable and other clean energy generation facilities in North America and Europe.
The Caisse will have a material financial interest in 11 wind projects in the U.S. and two in Canada.
Included in this portfolio is Le Plateau. Le Plateau is a 138.6-megawatt wind farm located in Quebec’s Gaspésie region; the wind farm has been in commercial operation since early 2012. The project sells all of its renewable energy to Hydro-Québec under a long-term contract.
