Together
we create
energy

 

Developing strong relationships with local communities is part of our DNA.

WELCOME !

Hi there,


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 four types of power generation: hydroelectric, solar, wind and thermal.
 

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.
 

Patrick Lemaire
President and CEO
Boralex Inc.

SOLAR

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.

SOLAR POWER

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!

BENEFITS

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

ENERGY STORAGE

Saving Rays Of Sunshine For Cloudy Days

Energy storage is a complementary technology to renewable energy supporting its integration to the electric grid.

BENEFITS

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.

RFI FOR MULTI-USE ACTIVITIES

Boralex is issuing a Request for Information (RFI) for Multi-Use activities on our projects in Greenwich (Bald Mountain Solar), Moreau (West River Solar), Adams and Ellisburg (Sandy Creek Solar), and Watertown and Hounsfield (Greens Corners Solar).

It is important to us to understand what activities our future neighbors think will help our projects integrate into your communities, as well as be successful in their own right, so we appreciate your input.

Thank you in advance. We look forward to hearing from you!

TELL US WHAT YOU THINK

STEP 1 - Review the RFI material.

STEP 2 - Fill in the form below by no later than December 15, 2020 if you have ideas for what we can do on the land between and under our solar panels (for example cultivating row crops, or restoring pollinator habitat), as well as suggestions for people or companies who can help us implement these ideas.

COMMUNITY INVOLVMENT

What Sets Us Appart

We believe that a successful project benefits the entire community and we think there’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to welcoming green energy projects to yours. By emphasizing collaboration and communication, Boralex has earned a reputation for successfully completing projects that prioritize community integration.

Renewable energy projects create positive social and economic benefits for communities, by increasing municipal taxes, creating jobs and stimulating local economy.

Boralex looks forward to discussing how best to integrate our projects within your community.

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.

WE LISTEN
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.

WE SUPPORT
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
THE ENVIRONMENT

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.
