Mainstream Renewable in violation of noise levels, seeks waiver — request for submissions regarding application
The Alberta Utilities Commission, the independent utilities regulator, will be considering the Oldman 2 wind farm post-construction sound survey at six locations in fulfillment of terms and conditions in Approval U2013-260. [Power Plant Approval U2013-260, Proceeding 2572, Application 1609509, May 15, 2013.]
At one of the six locations evaluated for noise levels near the Oldman 2 wind power plant, as required for compliance with Approval U2013-260, receptor C is in excess of the permissible sound levels.
