Berkshire Hathaway Energy’s subsidiary Calgary based BHE Canada said that it will break ground on a USD 200-million, 117.6-megawatt wind farm in southeastern Alberta next year. The Rattlesnake Ridge Wind project will be located southwest of Medicine Hat and produce enough energy to supply the equivalent of 79,000 homes, says

The unnamed large Canadian corporate customer has signed a long-term power purchase agreement for the majority of the Rattlesnake Ridge energy output, Christensen said. The project is being developed by UK based Renewable Energy Systems, which is building two other Alberta wind projects totalling 134.6 MW this year and has 750 MW of renewable energy installed or currently under construction in Canada.

Rattlesnake Ridge is being built despite the end of the Renewable Electricity Program created by the previous New Democrat Alberta government, which offered electricity price guarantees for project proponents who bid in three auctions to build new wind generation.

The Canadian Wind Energy Association says Alberta has the third-largest wind power sector in Canada with about 1,500 megawatts of capacity from 900 turbines at 37 projects. The sector is set to add about 1,300 megawatts over the next two years.
