Alberta wind farm approved

Alberta regulators have approved Geilectric Inc.’s application to build a 69-megawatt wind farm in the blustery southwest corner of the province.

Geilectric, which touts itself as being a no-employee entity managed by Montreal-based wind power player Eolectric, proposes to build the 26-turbine Welsch wind power project approximately 13 kilometres northeast of Pincher Creek. It appears to be the company’s first project in Alberta.

The Alberta Utilities Commission announced its approval of the project and substation, with conditions, late Monday.

Geilectric was directed to develop and implement a post-construction monitoring program, including bird and bat carcass surveys for at least two years and file the results with regulators.

As well, the company will have to conduct a post-construction noise survey on eight turbines and file the results with the com-mission.
