Toronto, Ontario – Potentia Renewables Inc. is proud to announce the completion of the three Jenner wind facilities located near Jenner, Alberta. Jenner 1 has a capacity of 122.4 MW, Jenner 2 has a capacity of 71.4 MW, and Jenner 3 has a capacity of 109.2 MW for a total capacity of 303 MWs. Both Jenner 1 and 2 were successful in obtaining a Renewable Electricity Program (“REP”) Round 3 contracts with the Alberta Electricity System Operator (“AESO”) in December 2018. Jenner 3 has a contract with CWP Energy Inc. for all the power it produces.
All three facilities utilize Enercon 5.0 wind turbines and will connect to Alberta’s electricity grid through a newly constructed transmission line from the Halsbury substation to the new Jenner substation.
These Projects used several local businesses for goods and services during the development and construction phases. During construction, the Project created more than 200 good paying, local jobs and the Project will continue to be an economic driver for the region, creating the equivalent of 10 fulltime jobs, providing significant tax revenue and $25, 000 a year in community funding to be distributed by Potentia. Details on how to apply for the community funding will be available in early 2024.
“We are thrilled to have completed the Jenner wind projects. The completion of these facilities represents a milestone for Potentia Renewables, as it brings our portfolio to over 1 GW of renewable energy generation. This is a significant achievement for the company and the team. I’m proud of everyone’s efforts, particularly the construction team, who has worked tireless to bring these facilities online before the end of the year.”Ben Greenhouse, CEO, Potentia Renewables Inc.
“We are proud to have worked with the local community and stakeholders throughout the development and construction phases of the project and we look forward to continuing to be part of the community for years to come.”Jeremy Jagt, President, Potentia Renewables Inc.
