EDF Renewables is proposing to develop, construct and operate the Red Rock Wind Power Project located north of the Red Rock Coulee, to the south of Seven Persons, in the County of Forty Mile No. 8, Alberta. The Project will generate up to 165.6 MW and will include 46 turbine locations. A map outlining the location of the site can be found here. In addition to working with the County of 40 Mile No. 8, EDF Renewables Canada will seek necessary approvals from the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) and Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP).
We will continue to engage with the community, landowners, and local government as we prepare to file our permits in the upcoming years.
Community engagement will take place throughout all phases of the Project, which consist of:
STAGE 1: DEVELOPMENT
Current stage includes public engagement, environmental field studies, AEP and AUC application preparation, and submission to AUC for permit approval.
STAGE 2: CONSTRUCTION
TBD upon commercial off-taker.
STAGE 3: OPERATION
Anticipated Operation in Q4 2023 with operations lasting 20-25 years.
STAGE 4: DECOMMISSIONING
Full decommissioning and reclamation will last 6-12 months following the 20 – 25 year operational term
As the Project is currently in Stage 1, engagement at this time is focused on sharing preliminary Project information, getting to know the community, and collecting feedback from neighbors, stakeholders and other interested parties.
We invited the community to come out and learn more about the Red Rock Wind Power Project at two open houses in Seven Persons, AB, on April 26, 2017 and November 15, 2017 respectively.
The feedback we have received from the landowners, government, and all stakeholders at the open houses have been helpful in ensuring your comments were incorporated into the Project and to build the Project with you in mind.
Copies of the information presented at these open houses can be found under the “News” tab.
EDF Renewables values the long-term benefits of working with the local community. If the Red Rock Wind Power Project is approved, the local community will benefit from the following:
■ Employment opportunities for the construction and operations of the Project.
■ Contract opportunities for local businesses.
■ Local investments into hospitality and construction services during the development, construction and operations phases of the Project.
■ Tax revenues throughout the life of the Project.
EDF Renewables believes every renewable energy project should be developed in lasting partnership with the local community. We strive to be a good neighbor and we work closely with the community to design our Project in a way that is respectful to the needs, heritage and future of Forty Mile County.
