Innergex's partner allocated 150 mw for a wind project

LONGUEUIL, QC, May 10, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. 
(TSX:INE) ("Innergex" or the "Corporation") announces that its partner, the 
Mi'gmawei Mawiomi, the Assembly of Mi'gmaq communities of Quebec, has been 
allocated 150 MW for a wind energy project in the Gaspé Peninsula, in Quebec, 
"This is a momentous event for the three Mi'gmaq communities, who see great 
opportunities for the future. We now have the resources to support our 
governments and make strategic investments. It is also important to know our 
neighbours will benefit from the project as well, because the majority of the 
revenues from the wind farm will be spent in the Gaspésie region", declares 
Chief Claude Jeannotte, Chairperson of the Mi'gmawei Mawiomi. 
"We are happy to have been selected by the Mi'gmawei Mawiomi for the 
realization of this project, and we look forward to developing a mutually 
beneficial partnership based on common values and interests", declares Michel 
Letellier, President and Chief Executive Officer of Innergex. 
"Our company's strong development track record stems in part from its 
willingness and ability to develop successful long-term partnerships. We 
believe there is a shift right across Canada towards local communities and 
First Nations choosing to become agents of their own socio-economic 
development, and this must be reflected in how energy projects are developed", 
adds Mr. Letellier. "We are very pleased with the development model that the 
Quebec government has chosen, as we have prospective projects in collaboration 
with local municipalities that we will be able to submit under the requests 
for proposals announced today", concludes Mr. Letellier. 
Today, Quebec Premier Pauline Marois announced that the government is pursuing 
the development of the wind energy industry in Quebec with the allocation of 
800 MW for new projects, including the 150 MW for a project by the Mi'gmawei 
Mawiomi, Innergex's partner, as well as 200MW for Hydro-Québec Production, 
300 MW by request for proposals for projects in the Gaspésie and 
Lower-Saint-Lawrence regions, and 150 MW by request for proposals for projects 
throughout Quebec. These requests for proposals will target projects initiated 
by local communities or cooperatives, in partnership with private developers.
