Being developed approximately 20km northeast of Provost, the project will feature 17 turbines to generate clean, renewable power for approximately 10,000 homes.

Said to be the company’s first renewable power project in Alberta, the facility is expected to reduce approximately 80,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions a year.

BluEarth President and CEO Kent Brown said: "Bull Creek is expected to inject more than $15m into the local economy over its life; in addition, there will be more than 50,000 person-hours of direct employment during construction as well as indirect benefits to local suppliers."

Power generated from the wind farm will be sold to school boards in Alberta, as part of agreements signed with assistance from the Alberta Schools Commodities Purchasing Consortium (CPC).

BluEarth is focused on acquisition, development, construction, and operation of wind, hydro, and solar projects in North America with a primary focus in Canada.
