Southern Alberta wind farm approved

The Alberta Utilities Commission has approved the 46-megawatt Oldman 2 wind farm, with conditions, but has denied both permit and licence for a substation and interconnection order.

Oldman 2 Wind Farm Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Luxembourg Mainstream Renewable Power and Alberta Wind Energy Corporation, will have to mitigate higher noise volumes if two now-empty dwellings on the farm site are occupied.

As well, the company will have to conduct and submit a post-construction comprehensive sound level survey once Oldman 2 becomes operational.

An application for a substation was denied after the company failed to file a substation layout or a complete list of proposed substation equipment with the regulator, the AUC said in its decision Friday.

As well, the company did not provide required information about a requested interconnection order.

“Without this information, the commission cannot make a decision regarding the proposed substation and interconnection,” the regulator said.

The 20-turbine farm will be located about 10 kilometres northeast of Pincher Creek, in the southwest corner of the province.
