Energy regulator looking at proposed wind farm near Jenner  

Credit:  Medicine Hat News | January 24, 2020 | medicinehatnews.com ~~

The provincial utility regulatory body is now considering the application to build a wind farm near Jenner that won a provincial grid supply contract in late 2018.

Buffalo Atlee wind farm would consist of three clusters of three or four turbines located about five kilometres southeast of the hamlet, near the northwest corner of CFB Suffield.

The 11 total turbines would produce 48 megawatts of power in peak conditions and put the power onto the Alberta grid via the Fortis distribution system.

The Buffalo Atlee project, which is considered a three-phase development, would proceed all at once, according to applications before the Alberta Utilities Commission.

It announced this week it is seeking formal public feedback on the project until Feb. 18.

The developer, Capstone Infrastructure in partnership with the Sawtooth First Nation, won a long-term supply contract with the Alberta Electric System operator in late 2018 as the previous government’s renewable energy program.

Companies submit supply price proposals for a 20-year term, and eventually 750 megawatts were awarded at an average price of $40 per megawatt (equal to 4-cents per kilowatt hour) starting in mid-2021.

Capstone, a Toronto-based power management company, operates gas and renewable energy facilities in Ontario and Quebec, and a biomass facility in conjunction with forestry industry in Whitecourt. Its portfolio also includes a 10-megawatt wind facility in Riverhurst, Sask., near Lake Deifenbaker, that operates under contract with SaskPower.

Other REP contract winners in 2018 that are located in the southeast of the province are the Cypress Wind project, south of Irvine, and a Potentia Energy, also located near Jenner.
