Greenleaf Power bought the St-Félicien Cogeneration Power Plant located in St-Félicien, Quebec, Canada, about 300 miles north of Montréal.
The St-Félicien facility has a net capacity of about 21 MW of electricity. It is capable of providing baseload renewable energy for as many as 23,000 homes as well as steam, which is provided to the adjacent facility. The biomass facility sells its electrical output to Hydro-Quebec under a long-term agreement.
Greenleaf Power is focused on investing in and developing projects that gather biomass that would otherwise be openly burned or landfilled, and converting it to renewable energy.
Greenleaf Power purchased the St-Félicien facility from Enel Green Power, Canada, which has owned and operated the St-Félicien plant since its inception in 2001. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
