Riverview Wind Power Plant

Riverview Wind Power Plant

Applications for a 117.6-megawatt wind power project in the Pincher Creek area


The Alberta Utilities Commission is currently considering applications from Enel Alberta Wind Inc. and AltaLink Management Ltd. for the Riverview Wind Power Plant project to construct 28 4.2-megawatt (MW) turbines with a total generating capability of 117.6-MW and a collector substation in the Municipal District of Pincher Creek. 

The Alberta Utilities Commission has cancelled the oral hearing for Proceeding 2402, scheduled to commence in Pincher Creek on April 30, 2019. The hearing was to consider the applications filed by Enel Alberta Wind Inc., the Alberta Electric System Operator and AltaLink Management Ltd. requesting approval to construct and operate a 117.6-MW wind power plant in the Pincher Creek area and to connect that power plant to the Alberta Interconnected Electric System. 

On March 28, 2019, the Castleview Ridge Estates Resident Group withdrew their objection to the applications. There are no longer any parties with standing objecting to the applications, and the Commission has cancelled the hearing as a result. 

The Commission will continue to review the applications without holding a hearing and may have additional questions on the applications. Once the Commission has completed its review, a decision will be issued in due course.
