Alberta Utilities Commission approves Bull Creek wind project
BluEarth Renewables says new wind farm will improve efficiency to Alberta's interconnected power system.
CALGARY – The Alberta Utilities Commission has approved BluEarth Renewables Inc.’s 115 megawatt Bull Creek wind project in Provost, Alta. on private land that’s currently used for agriculture and oil and gas production.
“Once built, this project will contribute to the diversification of wind generation in Alberta, which has historically been concentrated in the southern part of the province,” said Kent Brown, CEO of BluEarth.
The project, which is located away from existing wind farms in southern Alberta, will increase the efficiency of Bull Creek’s energy contribution to Alberta’s Interconnected Electrical System.
With the AUC approval in place, BluEarth says it plans to apply for municipal development permits and continues to work on securing additional Power Purchase Agreements.
Headquartered in Calgary, BluEarth is a private independent renewable power producer, focused on the acquisition, development, construction and operation of wind, water, and solar projects in North America.
