The Alberta Utilities Commission is out for comment until Sept. 22 on an application from EDF EN Canada Inc. and Vulcan Solar Hybrid Energy Centre Limited Partnership to construct and operate the Vulcan Solar Project.
This project will have a generation capacity of 77.5 MW and is proposed to be located within the existing Blackspring Ridge Wind Power Project, approximately 18 kilometers east of Carmangay, 40 kilometers north of Lethbridge and 42 kilometers southeast of Vulcan.
The Vulcan Solar Project will consist of approximately 297,000 photovoltaic panels installed on single-axis tracking racks, and a collector system that is proposed to connect at the Blackspring Ridge 485S Substation. The project is proposed to be constructed in two phases.
- Phase one will have a capacity of 55 MW, and is to be constructed in 2017; and
- phase two will have a capacity of 22.5 MW, and is proposed to be constructed in 2018.
