Boralex executes a Power Purchase Agreement for its Fort Fairfield power station

MONTREAL, Jan. 31 /CNW Telbec/ - Boralex Inc. ("Boralex" or the "Corporation") has concluded a power purchase agreement with a trusted and creditworthy counterparty starting March 1, 2011 for its thermal power plant in Fort Fairfield.  This 2-year contract allows for continued operation of the facility with similar benefits to Boralex.

In addition, Boralex is working hard to ensure the continued operation of its Ashland thermal power plant. If no contract is completed by March 2011, there is a strong likelihood that Boralex will be forced to suspend operations for an indefinite period.
