The Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) has granted the 291 MW Heritage wind farm a three-year permit extension.

According to an AUC document, the project was slated for completion on or before May 30 of this year; however, developer Heritage Wind Farm Development Inc. requested an extension to the fourth quarter of 2017.

Heritage said the plant could not be completed on schedule due to a delayed transmission project. The developer now anticipates that the Goose Lake/Castle Rock Ridge to Chapel Rock 240/500 kV transmission line, which is required for the full production of the power plant, will not be fully operational until the end of 2017.
