EDP Renewables Canada and TC Energy Corporation executed a 15-year power purchase agreement (PPA) for 100 percent of the output of the 297 MW Sharp Hills Wind Farm, located in the Special Areas municipality near the hamlets of Sedalia and New Bridgen, in the province of Alberta. The PPA will enable the continued development and eventual construction and operations of the wind farm, subject to customary regulatory approvals and conditions.

The wind farm is expected to be operational in 2023 and will provide economic benefits to the local project communities and the province of Alberta in the form of payments to local landowners and property tax revenue to the Special Area Board. Sharp Hills will also contribute to the increase in money spent at businesses in the vicinity of the wind farm.

The project will create jobs with approximately 300 employment opportunities during the wind farm’s construction and 15-20 permanent, local jobs during the project’s operational life. The Sharp Hills Wind Farm will also generate enough electricity to annually power the equivalent of more than 164,000 average Alberta homes and will save approximately two billion litres of water per year as well as avoiding estimated annual emissions of 700 thousand tons of CO2.

With this new agreement, it now has 0.4 GW of secured capacity in Canada that will be operational from 2021.
