Project under abeyance
The Alberta Utilities Commission has put the applications from Jenner Wind LP for the Jenner Wind Power Expansion Project into abeyance to allow Jenner Wind LP an opportunity to explore ways to avoid or further reduce the potential and residual effects of the projects on wildlife and wildlife habitat, including native grassland. The AUC expects Jenner Wind LP to provide additional proposed mitigation or propose modifications to the project that reduce the potential risks on wildlife and wildlife habitat.
Jenner 2 Limited Partnership and Jenner 3 Limited Partnership applied to the AUC to construct two wind power projects adjacent to the previously approved Jenner Wind Power Plant approximately three and a half kilometres east of Jenner. These projects were originally applied for as a single project, the Jenner Wind Power Expansion Project, in 2017 and then placed on hold at the request of the applicant. A notice of application for the project was issued on March 25, 2020.
The Jenner Wind Power Project 2 would consist of 17 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 4.2 megawatts (MW), for a total capacity of 71.4 MW. The Jenner Wind Power Project 3 would consist of 26 wind turbines for a total capacity of 109.2 MW. The wind power projects would also consist of a mix of underground and overhead collector cables, and interconnections with the Alberta Interconnected Electric System. The turbines will have a tower height of 110 metres and a rotor diameter of 155 metres. The proposed turbine locations, shown on the map, are located in:
|4, 6, 7, 8, 27, 31, 33, 34||21||8||west of 4|
|3, 4, 6, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15||22||8||west of 4|
|1, 12, 14, 23, 24, 36||21||9||west of 4|
Parties that registered submissions for the Jenner Wind Power Expansion Project in 2017 and received standing are requested to review the applications and indicate if they still have concerns.
