Calgary-based Pteragen Canada, a subsidiary of Renovalia Energy Wind Canada, says it has received regulatory approval from the Alberta Utilities Commission to proceed with construction on its 120 MW Peace Butte Wind Power Project, located south of Medicine Hat.

According to Pteragen, construction on the C$200 million project is expected to begin in early 2014 and reach commercial operation by the end of the year. Transmission has been secured onto an existing 138 kV transmission line running directly through the property.

With more than six years of on-site wind data, Pteragen says Peace Butte is ideally situated in a well-defined and consistent wind resource with more than 3,300 productive hours per year that will provide some geographic diversity to the 1,087 MW of wind generation currently operating within Alberta.
