The Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) has signed off on the 115 MW Bull Creek wind farm, located on private land approximately 20 km northeast of Provost.
With the AUC approval in place, project developer BluEarth Renewables Inc. says it plans to apply for municipal development permits and continue to work on securing additional power purchase agreements.
‘Wind turbines have a strong track record of being good neighbors in rural Alberta communities for over 20 years. There are over 760 wind turbines operating in Alberta today, with more under construction,’ says Kent Brown, president and CEO of BluEarth. "As we move forward with this project, BluEarth is committed to carrying on that legacy and is looking forward to being a good neighbor to area residents for years to come."
