Alberta Wind Project Waits for Production Incentive

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Suncor Energy Products of Canada has submitted an application to the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board (EUB) to build a 30 MW wind project near Taber, Alberta. The proposed Chin Chute Wind Power Project, 20 kilometers southwest of Taber, would include approximately 20 wind turbines built across 583 hectares of leased private land. The project would have the capacity to produce enough zero-emission electricity to power 14,000 Alberta homes and displace the equivalent of 88,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year. The Municipal District of Taber has granted planning approval for the project and Suncor held an open house last month to share information with residents. The project is subject to other reviews and approvals, including an application for funding under the federal Wind Power Production Incentive. If approved, Chin Chute would be Suncor’s third wind power project and its second in southern Alberta.
