The Alberta Utilities Commission recently set a procedural schedule for the review of an application from 1646658 Alberta Ltd., a subsidiary of BluEarth Renewables Inc., for a 115-MW wind project.
The planned facility would be in east-central Alberta, approximately 20 kilometers northeast of the town of Provost. The application was previously suspended due to a request from 1646658 Alberta Ltd. On April 15, the company filed a revised noise impact assessment and associated amendments to its application.
The various review deadlines from here include: applicant’s deadline to respond to information requests of June 7; interveners’ updated written evidence deadline of June 26; and commencement of hearing on Sept. 9.
Project features include:
- Construct forty-six 2.5-MW wind turbines distributed on approximately 3,600 hectares (9,000 acres) of land.
- Construct Bull Creek 280S substation for future connection to the Alberta Interconnected Electric System.
- Construct a 34.5-kV collector system consisting primarily of underground power lines with some overhead sections.
