Talking point: The acquisition would add over 4,000 megawatts to Brookfield’s already 18,000-megawatt-strong renewables portfolio. In 2019, Brookfield made deals for a 200-megawatt wind farm in China and a 50 per cent stake in solar power firm X-Elio.

Last year, the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec made two solar investments worth about $350 million combined, and in August 2018, the Public Sector Pension Investment Board invested about $52 million in a Quebec wind power firm.
