Another wind farm in southeast Alberta is being put before Alberta utility regulators.

The Hilda Wind Power Project would consist of 20 turbine towers on either side of Highway 41 northwest of the hamlet in Cypress County.

The developer, Renewable Energy Systems Canada, submitted its application to the Alberta Utilities Commission on Wednesday. The array would produce up to 100 megawatts of electricity in peak conditions that would be put onto the Alberta power grid via a new substation and existing line.

A recent letter to stakeholders stated construction on the $150-million project could begin in 2022 and be complete in 2023.

An underground collector network on the site, operations building and access roads are planned.

Public feedback and written submissions on the proposal, denoted as No. 26569, will be accepted until July 14.

British-based RES has 3,000 employees in 10 countries. It is a partner in the development and construction of the Rattelsnake Ridge wind farm, which is currently under construction near Whitla in the County of Forty Mile.

Gets Sask. contract

RES was awarded a green-power supply contract by SaskPower on Thursday for its planned wind farm near Kipling, east of Regina.

The 200-megawatt facility, known as Bekevar Wind, would consist of 40 turbine towers spread over 20,000 acres, including portions of the Cowessess First Nation, a partner in the project.

SaskPower plans to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by half by 2030, the same year conventional coal power production is eliminated.
