Wind

Capital Power has received approval from its Board of Directors to proceed with the development of Whitla Wind 2. The 97 MW facility is expected in 2021. Capital Power will leverage its construction experience in Alberta and from Whitla Wind 1 to minimize contingencies and mitigate risks for Whitla Wind 2, which has an expected capital cost of $165 million.

*Expected

Whitla Wind 2 will generate renewable energy credits to hedge against Capital Power’s carbon compliance costs from its Alberta thermal generation facilities. Prior to commercial operations, Capital Power will pursue renewable offtake contracts with commercial and industrial customers for Whitla Wind 2.

Community Investment

The community and economic benefits for the project would be similar to those for Whitla Wind 1, including a new and steady stream of municipal tax revenue, and annual lease revenues to landowners. Development of the project will generate many jobs for the construction portion and will create permanent employment opportunities, including one full-time facility site manager, as well as service and maintenance personnel.
