The proposed Jenner Wind Power Projects are located near the town of Jenner in southeast Alberta. The Jenner Wind Power Project (JWPP) has a nameplate capacity of 122.4 megawatts (MW) and the Jenner Wind Power Project Expansion (JWPPE) has a nameplate capacity of 180.2 MW. The projects are primarily located on cultivated land and will generate clean energy while allowing landowners to continue with their daily activities. The JWPP and JWPPE have an excellent wind resource that has been verified through multiple years of collected onsite wind data.
The JWPP and JWPPE are anticipated to be under construction in 2018 with an in-service date in 2019. The projects involve the installation of up to 89 wind turbines, an electrical collection system, access roads and the construction of a new wind collector substation, called the Halsbury 306S Substation. The turbines in the projects will be connected through a combination of 34.5 kilovolt (kV) above ground and underground collector lines that converge at the proposed Halsbury 306S Substation. The JWPP and JWPPE will have a temporary laydown area during construction and an operations and maintenance building during the life of the projects. The projects will require construction of new access roads and upgrades to existing roads in the area. These roads will transport materials for turbine assembly during the construction stage, and to access turbines for regular maintenance during operation. PRI will look to the local community where possible during construction for local trades and other business opportunities. The JWPP and JWPPE propose to connect to Alberta’s electric grid through a 14km 240kV transmission line identified as 949L.
Potentia Renewables Inc. (PRI) purchased the Jenner Wind Power Projects from Joss Wind Power Inc. through a subsidiary called Power Renewable Energy Corporation (PRE) effective November 30 2015. The JWPP and JWPPE were assigned to a special purpose vehicle called the Jenner Wind Limited Partnership (JWLP) in June 2017.
