The Alberta Utilities Commission is currently reviewing an application for a 20.1-megawatt solar power plant east of Strathmore



The Alberta Utilities Commission has approved an application from East Strathmore Solar Project Inc. to construct and operate the East Strathmore Solar Project, a 20.1-megawatt solar power plant approximately 12 kilometres east of Strathmore. The proposed project will be sited on approximately 120 acres of private, cultivated land in Wheatland County on a single quarter section of land located in the southwest quarter of Section 9, Township 24, Range 23, west of the Fourth Meridian.

East Strathmore Solar Project Inc. is also approved to interconnect the power plant to the FortisAlberta Inc. electric distribution system through a 700-metre underground distribution line.
