Greenleaf Power LLC, a US-based owner and operator of biomass plants, has finalized the purchase of the Saint-Felicien cogeneration power plant.



Located in the Canadian state of Quebec, about 480 km north of Montreal, Saint-Felicien (pictured) is Greenleaf’s first acquisition outside the US.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Saint-Felicien is a 24 MW wood waste-fired cogeneration facility that produces both steam and electricity.

Its electrical output is sold to Hydro-Quebec under a long-term agreement to supply up to 23,000 homes, while its steam is utilized by an adjacent facility.

Based in Sacramento, Greenleaf describes itself as one of the US’ leading bioenergy producers and operates biomass plants across California.

The acquisition of the Saint-Felicien plant raises Greenleaf’s total installed capacity to more than 145 MW.
