Pattern Energy Group LP Secures Long-Term Power Purchase Agreement for Broughton Wind Project in Quebec

Group LP has finalized a 30-year (PPA) with Hydro-Quebec for its 150-MW Broughton Wind project in Quebec, . The agreement follows Broughton Wind's selection earlier this year as one of the winners in a tender call by the Canadian utility.

Developed as a 50/50 joint venture between Pattern Energy and a coalition of community and First Nations partners, including the MRC des Appalaches, MRC de l' Erable, Conseil des Abenakis d'Odanak, and Conseil des Abenakis de Wolinak, the CAD-500-million (USD 363.5m/EUR 339.3m) project is located in the municipalities of Saint-Pierre-de-Broughton, Sacre-Coeur-de-Jesus, and Thetford Mines, approximately 40 miles south of Quebec City.

“We are proud to collaborate with Hydro-Québec on this exciting new project,” said Hunter Armistead, CEO of Pattern Energy. “With 11 facilities and counting, Pattern is leading Canada's renewable energy industry, building new ties with our Indigenous partners and supporting local communities. Broughton Wind is just another example of our commitment to Quebec and Canada as we help power half a million Canadian homes.”

Once operational in 2029, Broughton Wind is expected to generate enough to power over 25,000 homes annually. During its construction phase, the project is anticipated to create up to 200 jobs, with 10 full-time positions once operational.

Pattern Energy currently operates 1,980 MW of installed capacity in Canada, with the Broughton Wind project set to double the company's capacity in Quebec.
