Jenner Wind Power Project Expansion

Jenner Wind Power Project ​Expansion

Jenner 2 Limited Partnership and Jenner 3 Limited Partnership have filed applications to construct two wind power projects in the Jenner area  

​​

Overview

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 May 14, 2021.

Jenner 2 Limited Partnership and Jenner 3 Limited Partnership have applied to construct two wind power projects. 

  • The Jenner Wind Power Project 2 would consist of 13 5.5-megawatt (MW) turbines for a total capability of 71.4 MW. 
  • The Jenner Wind Power Project 3 would consist of 20 turbines for a total capability of 109.2 MW.

The proposed turbines have a total height of 194 metres. Both projects would also include a collector system that would connect to the approved Halsbury 306S Substation. The proposed project locations, shown on the attached map, are located in:

These projects were originally applied for in August 2017 as a single project, the Jenner Wind Power Expansion Project, and then placed on hold at the request of the applicant. The project was then split into two separate projects by the applicant before being placed on hold again until project amendments, including a change in the number and type of proposed wind turbines, were finalized. Stakeholders may have received a notice of application in September​ 2017 and March 2020 for Proceeding 22866. While the AUC proceeding number remains the same, the applications now being considered by the Commission were filed on April 9, 2021.

If you had already filed a submission in response to the September 2017 or March 2020 notices and wish to participate in this proceeding, the AUC requests that you file new submissions related to the amended proposed projects.

The AUC is considering the two amended proposed projects in a single proceeding but will make a separate decision on each proposed project.
