Partners Unveil Plans for 150 MW Wind Power Project

June 9, 2004 [] SaskPower International and ATCO Power have held public open houses to share their plans for their 150 MW Saskatchewan Wind Power Project. The project will be built at Rushlake Creek, about 25 kilometers southeast of Swift Current, in the southwestern part of the province. Construction is expected to start later this year. Rushlake Creek was chosen because it is the most cost-effective site, the partners say, with the determining factors being lower transmission line losses and interconnection costs. When complete, the project is expected to generate energy to meet the electrical needs of approximately 64,000 homes.
