The Hand Hills wind farm, located northeast of Drumheller, Alberta, will generate enough clean, renewable energy for approximately 68,000 homes annually and is expected to reach commercial operation in early 2023. It will also provide indirect revenue to the local municipality in the form of local services and supplies, and contribute significant and stable long-term property tax revenue over the life of operations.

“This is a significant project milestone, and we are very grateful for the support of the local landowners, the community and both Starland County and Special Areas 2,” said Grant Arnold, President & CEO of BluEarth. “The Hand Hills Wind Project will bring considerable economic benefit to the region, and we are pleased to continue our investment in our home province of Alberta.”

“Projects like BluEarth’s new Hand Hills Wind Facility are exactly what we wanted to see when we moved ahead with our energy-only market,” said Associate Minister Dale Nally. “Not only will it provide low-emissions energy to support our long-term decarbonization goals, but also 175 jobs for Albertans and $250 million towards our provincial economy, all without taxpayer subsidies. We are proud to have companies like BluEarth choosing Alberta for their renewable projects.”
