The Alberta Utilities Commission has issued Enel Green Power a three-year permit extension to construct the 33 MW second phase of its 109 MW Castle Rock Ridge wind power plant. The original March 31, 2014, deadline has been extended to March 31, 2017.

According to a regulatory filing, Enel submitted that delays in the development of AltaLink's Southern Alberta Transmission Reinforcement project, particularly the Goose Lake to Fidler to Chapel Rock transmission upgrade, had impacted Enel's timeline to complete the 14-turbine second phase. The developer further noted that AltaLink has yet to submit relevant routing details, and Enel stated that it might ultimately need to eliminate a number of wind turbines in order to accommodate the necessary right-of-way and safety setback requirements.
