December 18 (Renewables Now) - Canadian energy firm Greengate Power Corporation said on Monday that its 113-MW Stirling wind project is one of the winners in Alberta’s latest call for renewable energy capacity.
The particular project has been awarded a 20-year Renewable Electricity Support Agreement (RESA) by the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO), according to the announcement. This deal paves the way for the start of construction “in the near future”.
The wind park will be built at sites in the County of Warner No.5 and Lethbridge County. It is a joint venture between Greengate, Potentia Renewables Inc and Paul First Nation. Potentia is the majority owner.
Overall, Alberta awarded contracts to 763 MW of wind projects under Rounds 2 and 3 of the state’s Renewable Energy Programme (REP).
