The Alberta Utilities Commission has made a decision on a project from EDP Renewables SH Project GP Ltd. to construct a wind power plant named the Sharp Hills Wind Farm near Sedalia, Alberta. The AUC held a hearing from June 5 to 8, 2018 in Oyen and on June 13, 2018 in Calgary to review the applications and submissions received, as indicated in the notice of revised hearing location issued on March 21, 2018.
The Commission finds that approval of the project is in the public interest having regard to the social, economic, and other effects of the project, including its effects on the environment, given the mitigation measures ordered by the Commission.
