Paintearth Wind Project

Paintearth Wind Project

The Alberta Utilities Commission is currently considering applications for the Paintearth Wind Project


Applications have been submitted to construct and operate the Paintearth Wind Project approximately 40 kilometres southeast of Stettler, Alberta. The application was originally submitted on June 6, 2017, and an amendment was filed on May 31, 2018. 

​Original application​Amended application
​Number of turbines​44​42
​Turbine capacity​3.4 megawatts​3.6 megawatts
​Total capacity​149.6 megawatts​151.2 megawatts
​Height of turbines​140 metres​140 meters


This proceeding will also consider the applications for a collector substation and a 34.5-kilovolt collector system.

The AUC issued a notice of amendment for the Paintearth Power Project on July 5, 2018. The notice contains further details and an updated map with the proposed turbine locations. 

Paintearth Wind Project Ltd. requested that further consideration of its applications be suspended and that the proceeding be held in abeyance. The reason for the request is that Paintearth is undertaking additional consultation to address stakeholder concerns that may result in changes to the proposed project. Paintearth intends to file an amendment to its applications with the AUC in 2019.
