While ensuring its facilities run smoothly, Boralex also makes sure that communities benefit from the economic returns of its operations. In addition to the construction and operations jobs its facilities create, Boralex makes a point of sourcing goods and services from local suppliers, while implementing tools and initiatives to maximize local economic benefits. Another example is the development of projects in partnership with local communities, including First Nations, such as the Six Nations of the Grand River Band in connection with the Niagara Region Wind Farm, Ontario. And for a number of its facilities, it also pays royalties to the host communities.
“Our photovoltaic projects are an increasingly competitive source of energy, while driving value creation locally. With innovation and future access to storage assets, this technology will become a staple of the renewable energy industry.”
- Benjamin Huriet, Head of New Markets and Innovation, France
