The Old Elm Wind Farm is being developed by the Alberta Renewable Power Limited Partnership (“ARPLP”), a newly formed joint venture between Alberta Wind Energy Corporation (“AWEC”) and Boralex. The project is backed by the local expertise of AWEC, one of the longest serving developers in Alberta, and Boralex, a publicly listed company (BLX) and leader in the Canadian market with over 25 years experience in the renewable energy space.

ARPLP is actively supporting the wind and solar industries across Canada and are excited about bringing this project online.


Boralex develops, builds and operates renewable energy power facilities in Canada, France and the United States. A leader in the Canadian market and producer of onshore wind power, the Corporation is recognized for its solid experience in optimizing its asset base in four power generation types — wind, hydroelectric, thermal and solar. Boralex ensures sustained growth by leveraging the expertise and diversification developed over the past 25 years.


Alberta Wind Energy Corporation (“AWEC”) was formed in 2003 to develop independent wind farm projects. AWEC has proven to provide the local experience required for bringing projects from inception to completion and has partnered with large international renewable energy developers on numerous projects at various stages of development. Alberta Wind Energy Corporation is active in supporting the wind and solar industries across Canada.
