Greenleaf Power purchases Canadian plant

By Staff | November 19, 2013

Greenleaf Power has finalized the purchase of Quebec-based St. Félicien Cogeneration Power Plant from Enel Green Power, Canada. The 21-megawatt (MW) facility takes in waste wood as feedstock and sells power to Hydro-Quebec under a 25-year power purchase agreement. Steam generated at the facility is supplied to an adjacent sawmill. Enel Green Power has owned and operated the plant since it was established in 2001. 

"The addition of the St-Félicien facility marks Greenleaf Power’s first acquisition outside of the United States and is another step for us on our growth path," said Hugh Smith, president of Greenleaf. “St-Félicien Cogeneration adds to our portfolio of biomass plants and increases our total renewable energy capacity to more than 145 megawatts.”

Earlier this year, Greenleaf Power announced it had finalized the purchase of the 19-MW Tracy Biomass Power plant in Tracy, Calif., from the U.S. Renewables group. The facility became Greenleaf Power’s fourth biomass plant in the state. The company also operates the Desert View plant in Mecca, Calif., the Honey Lake plant in Wendel, Calif., and the Eel River plant in Scotia, Calif.
