Proponent Withdraws Wind Generation Project

Saskatchewan, Canada [] SaskPower announced that Benchlands Wind Power Corporation has withdrawn its proposed generation project selected in the first phase of the Environmentally Preferred Power (EPP) program. The EPP program was designed to meet the growing provincial demand for electricity until the year 2010 using environmentally low-impact generation options that create no additional greenhouse gases. In March 2006 SaskPower signed a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Benchlands to purchase electricity from a 5.4-megawatt (MW) wind power generation project to be built and operated by Benchlands at a site near Tompkins, Saskatchewan. “Fortunately, the four new projects selected in the second phase of the EPP program should permit us to come very close to our original goals for the initiative,” said Rick Patrick, vice-president, SaskPower Planning, Environment and Regulatory Affairs.
