Enchant Solar is a 75 MW solar development project in the Municipal District of Taber, Alberta. The project is located on privately owned land located approximately 12 km north of the Hamlet of Enchant. Construction began in October 2021 and the project has an expected capital cost of $119 million.

In April 2021, Capital Power announced a 15-year renewable energy agreement with Labatt Breweries of Canada for 51% of the output from the project. This agreement demonstrates the power of collaboration across industries to advance renewable electricity, for a better world.

Quick Facts

  • Project will be comprised of 90,237 Longi LR5-72HBD-540M solar PV panels with a nominal rating of 540 watts DC each and 90,238 Longi LR5-72HBD-545M solar PV panels with a nominal rating of 545 watts DC each.
  • The solar panels will utilize bifacial solar panel technology, which absorbs light from the top and bottom of the panel. Combined with a single-axis tracking system, this technology will increase efficiency and facility output by up to 25% compared to a fixed axis system with monofacial solar technology.

Consultation and Engagement

We value and consider local community interests and priorities. We engage government, employees, local communities, investors, stakeholders, and Indigenous communities. Our goal for every project, every facility and every initiative, internal and external, is to build, operate, and align with the interests and priorities of those closest to, and most impacted by, our operations.
