Alberta regulators have approved the 291-megawatt Heritage Wind Farm power plant, a renewable project outside of Pincher Creek.

The Alberta Utilities Commission gave the green light to the project which will include 97 Vesta V90 turbines atop 80-metre tall towers straddling two townships along Alberta’s premier wind corridor.

Privately held Heritage Wind Farm Development Inc., headed by Allan Kettles, is developing the project, which originally was proposed by Benign Energy Canada Inc. in 2006.

The approval, June 2, was a “small victory” for southern Albertans who support renewable wind power to green the province, Kettle said in a statement.

Alberta currently has 777 megawatts of wind power connected to its grid, and expects to up that number to 1,100 MW by year end, according to the Alberta Electric System Operator.
