If you feel you may be affected by the application submitted by Renewable Energy Systems, you can provide input by filing a submission with the AUC to review before it makes its decision.

The Alberta Utilities Commission is currently reviewing the applications and submissions received which can be accessed through the eFiling System and going to Proceeding 22966.

There are 115 turbines in the proposed project, each wind turbine is rated at 3.465 MW with a hub height of 101.5 metres and a turbine diameter of 132 metres.
