The Riplinger Wind Power Project (“the Project”) is transitioning to a mid-stage project, located approximately 30km southeast of Pincher Creek in Cardston County, Alberta. The Project will consist of up to 50 wind turbine generators, each with a capacity to generate between 6.2 to 7.2 MW of power. The final turbine technology has not been confirmed at this time.
TransAlta has secured all the lands necessary for the project, completed the suite of environmental studies required by Alberta Environment and Parks, preliminary geotechnical surveys, preliminary engineering, and is on track for submitting and application for Permit & License to the Alberta Utilities Commission in Q1 2023. The Project is also advancing through the AESO interconnection queue.
