Pteragen Canada Inc. obtains regulatory approval for its 120 MW Peace Butte Wind Power Project in Alberta

Pteragen Canada Inc., a Calgary-based renewable energy company and wholly owned subsidiary of Renovalia Energy Wind Canada Inc., announced that it has received final regulatory approval from the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) to proceed with construction on its 120 MW Peace Butte Wind Power Project.

Located in S.E. Alberta, twenty-two kilometers south of the city of Medicine Hat, the wind farm is expected to annually generate 360,000 MWh of renewable power (enough to power 50,000 average households) and 250,000 tonnes of sustainable and verifiable “Made-in-Alberta” emission off-sets to help satisfy Alberta’s increasing requirement for renewable energy.

The company estimates the total project investment will be in excess of $200 million, a significant portion of which will directly impact the local economy, creating real jobs and project opportunities for Alberta-based firms.
