With AUC approval, the company now intends to apply for municipal development permits and moves ahead to work on securing additional power purchase agreements.

The wind project, with 46 wind towers, will be located on private land presently used for agriculture, ranching and oil and gas production.

BluEarth Renewables president and CEO Kent Brow said, "Wind turbines have a strong track record of being good neighbors in rural Alberta communities for over 20 years. There are over 760 wind turbines operating in Alberta today, with more under construction.

"As we move forward with this project, BluEarth is committed to carrying on that legacy and is looking forward to being a good neighbor to area residents for years to come."
