On October 24, 2018, Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. completed the acquisition of the 62% undivided co-ownership participation of TransCanada Corporation in five wind energy farms in Quebec ("Cartier Wind Farms"), as well as TransCanada's 50% interest in the operating entities of the Cartier Wind Farms, for approximately C$620 million. Innergex already owned the remaining interests in the Cartier Wind Farms and its operating entities. The transaction will increase Innergex’s net capacity by 366MW.
