Proposed solar farm
for Strathmore
JANET KANTERS
Times Editor

If Solar Krafte Utilities Inc. gets the go-ahead


from the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC), a
Hospital new solar farm will be built in Strathmore.
improvements The proposed solar farm is a 40.5-megawatt so-
lar facility located on 320 acres on the southeast
side of town, and according to Solar Krafte pres-
Page 16 ident Mark Burgert, would be the ninth installa-
tion the company will install in southern Alberta.
“This project is estimated to offset 48,000
tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually,
generating enough electricity to power more
than 10,000 Alberta homes,” he said.
Solar Krafte has been building solar-powered
plants since 2009, starting in California. The com-
pany focuses solely on power generation in “so-
lar rich” jurisdictions, where the price for power
Braves keep is not subsidized. Burgert said that means the
climbing company can deliver power to consumers at the
best price, and without emissions or waste.
The other eight installations are located further
south in the province: Enchant, Stirling, Warner,
Wrentham, Brooks, Spring Coulee and two near
Vauxhall.
“Strathmore is a little further north than some
of our other systems, but it still has a favoura-
ble solar resource,” said Burgert. “But the most
important feature here is the interconnection ca-
pacity.”
The project will tie directly into the local Forti-
sAlberta electricity distribution grid.
