May 27, 2011 –
The province of Quebec is developing a new program to purchase electricity produced by
cogeneration from forest residual biomass. The program will create up to 150 MW
and will be open to all developers of cogeneration plants of 50 MW or less that
use residual forest biomass as feedstock. Hydro-Québec Distribution will
purchase the electricity generated at a fixed price, estimated at 11 cents/kWh.
Once the government approves the final regulations, Hydro-Québec Distribution will
submit the program to the Energy Board (Régie de l'énergie) for approval.
