Developing strong relationships with local communities is part of our DNA.
Please allow me to introduce Boralex.
We are a renewable energy project developer, owner and operator that delivers, in a safe and responsible manner, the electricity the world needs today. Based in Canada, firmly established in the United States and in France, Boralex specializes in three types of power generation - hydroelectric, solar, wind - as well as storage.
Green energy can generate long-term wealth for you, your family and your community while keeping our air cleaner, creating jobs, driving technological advancements and contributing to the local tax base that helps fund health, education, recreation and other homegrown initiatives. Boralex also grows the economies of the communities where we operate by creating community investments and purchasing goods and services locally.
We engage early, often and broadly with landowners and all project stakeholders in informed discussions to ensure that our projects comply with all the local requirements. We are in this together, and the decisions we make determine what our shared energy future looks like.
We create renewable energy to make people’s lives better. We are equally committed to our role as a responsible and ethical employer, neighbor, customer, taxpayer, innovator and steward of the environment.
I thank you for your interest.
President and Chief Executive Officer
Present in the US Market for nearly 20 years
Boralex’s strategic plan provides for the development of solar energy projects in the United States, and
expanding the New York solar development pipeline to over 1,000-MW.
Boralex took the first major steps towards achieving its New York objectives with the submission of 180 MW of Solar PV submitted into the New York State Energy Research Development Authority’s 2019 solicitation for projects. Boralex’s Greens Corners (120 MW), Sandy Creek (19.99 MW), Bald Mountain (20 MW) and West River (20 MW) solar projects were all selected.
In 2021, Boralex submitted 800 MW of solar projects into the NYSERDA solicitation, with an anticipated announcement on selections in early 2022. Details of these projects will be added below as they become available.

Is A Key Part of A Clean Energy Future
Every two hours, more solar energy hits the Earth than humans use in a year, which is why we are keen to explore the huge potential of this renewable CO2-free power source with you!
Solar farms provide many economic benefits to local municipalities, while requiring few community resources.
Increasing Tax revenues To Municipalities
Supporting Local Suppliers
Creating Quality Jobs
Offsetting Greenhouse Gases
Improving Air Quality
Saving Rays Of Sunshine For Cloudy Days
Energy storage is a complementary technology to renewable energy supporting its integration to the electric grid.
When paired with solar panels, not only will the power be emission-free, but the combined system would also contribute to improving grid resiliency.
By improving the overall efficiency of the power grid, energy storage accelerates the broader adoption of variable non-emitting energy sources.

WE DEVELOP STRONG RELATIONSHIPS
Our long-term perspective helps to shape our development approach, motivating us to develop long-term and strong relationships with landowners and the communities who host our projects and with whom we hope to be good neighbors for decades.
TO OUR COMMUNITIES
Whether it is prior to initiating a project, during its construction or in the course of its operation, we maintain an on-site sustained presence and employ inclusive consultation, information and follow-up processes to make sure we have heard and responded to the comments and suggestions expressed by the community.
THE LOCAL ECONOMY
In addition to the jobs created during the development, construction and operation of our plants, we try to source goods and services from local suppliers throughout the life of our projects.
WE GIVE BACK
TO OUR HOSTS
Social involvement is of great importance to Boralex. Every year, we support local non-profit organizations and charitable events to contribute further to the vitality of our host communities.
WE CARE FOR
Environmental issues are a high priority in all decisions we make, and we employ best practices with regard to biodiversity protection, habitat conservation, waste management and air emission reduction.
