The Chin Chute Wind Power Project, a 30MW joint venture project between Acciona Wind Energy Canada Inc., Enbridge Income Fund, and Suncor Energy Products Inc., is now operational and sending electricity to the Alberta Interconnected Electric System.
The CAN$60 million facility is located 20 kilometres southwest of Taber. Although turbine and substation construction were completed in September, transmission line commissioning, tie-ins and connections required for electricity delivery to the power grid were completed in late October. Operated by Acciona, the wind farm consists of 20 1.5MW turbines and a 20-kilometre transmission line.
