High wind energy potential in Alberta’s Palliser region
Hundreds of megawatts of wind energy projects worth billions are proposed or under development in Alberta’s Palliser region. Capital Power, Suncor, Berkshire Hathaway are leading the way with massive projects while others are expected to break ground in the near future.
All projects are drawn to the region’s steady wind supply, rail access, road infrastructure, and available workforce. Wind tower components are able to arrive in the region via rail along Fort Mile Rail, CP Rail, or CN Rail.
