Pteragen Canada Inc. on July 4 filed a request with the Alberta Utilities Commission for a time extension to complete construction of the 120-MW Peace Butte Wind Power Project.
Pteragen is requesting that the construction completion date be extended from the currently-approved date of Dec. 31, 2016, to Dec. 31, 2018. The original completion deadline was June 30, 2014, but the commission previously approved a change to the current deadline of the end of this year. The company cited uncertainty over the schedule for Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan and the related timetable for the early retirement of coal-fired power plants in the province as the reasons for the project delay.
The project site is located near Seven Persons, Alberta. Pteragen said AltaLink is also making changes to the construction schedule for needed interconnection facilities for this wind project to accomodate this delay.
