Springbrook Solar Power Plant

Springbrook Solar Power Plant Project

The AUC is reviewing applications for a solar power plant in the Red Deer area



The Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) is reviewing applications from Saturn Power Inc. to construct and operate the Springbrook Solar Power Plant Project. 

The AUC issued a notice of application​ for the project on November 4, 2021.

Green Cat Renewables Inc., on behalf of Saturn Power Inc., has applied for approval to construct and operate the Springbrook Solar Project and to connect it to the FortisAlberta Inc. electric distribution system. The project would consist of a solar photovoltaic power plant with an installed capacity of up to 20 megawatts.

The project would be sited on approximately 92 acres of cultivated land within Red Deer County, approximately 1.8 kilometres northwest of the hamlet of Springbrook. The proposed project would be sited adjacent to the Red Deer Regional Airport on land owned by the airport and a private landowner. More specifically, the project would be located on the northwest, northeast and southeast quarters of Section 23, Township 37, Range 28, west of the Fourth Meridian.
