The Alberta Utilities Commission on Sept. 20 approved a Sept. 7 application from Boralex, filed on behalf of 9778713 Canada Inc., to transfer ownership of the Oldman River 1 Wind Power Plant from Alberta Wind Energy Corp. to 9778713 Canada.
9778713 Canada notified the AUC that it will assume ownership of the power plant effective Sept. 30. Said the Sept. 20 commission order: “Based upon the information provided, 9778713 Canada Inc. has demonstrated that it is eligible to hold the power plant approval in its name. The Commission grants approval of the requested power plant ownership change outlined in the application.”
The application said that 9778713 Canada will act as the general partner of Alberta Renewable Power LP, in which Alberta Wind Energy Corp. will continue to hold an interest.
The commission in 2006 approved this two-turbine wind project at a total of 3.6 MW in size.
