Greengate Power Corporation is developing 1,450 MW of wind energy projects on approximately 165,000 acres of private land across Alberta.

Many of Alberta’s best wind resources are located in areas that are transmission constrained, and require significant transmission system upgrades to exploit their potential resources. However, Greengate’s portfolio of projects are in areas with strong wind resources, are geographically diverse, and are in transmission rich areas of Alberta.

By taking this unique approach, Greengate’s projects are positioned to exploit the strong wind resources of Alberta, with few, if any required transmission upgrades. This allows for additional wind energy to be integrated into the transmission system, with minimal impact to rate payers. Clearly, this is the most efficient way to meet Alberta’s growing demand for electricity from renewable sources.

Featured Project: Chigwell

The 150 MW Chigwell Wind Project is being developed on private land located in Central Alberta 5 km east of the Town of Lacombe. Located on a ridge and high plateau consisting of rolling farm land and grazing land, a wind resource assessment program is underway with data collected since March 2008.
