Wild Rose 2 Wind
The Wild Rose 2 Wind Farm is a 192 MW renewable energy facility currently in development by Capstone. The project is located in Cypress County, Alberta, approximately 60 km southeast of Medicine Hat. Capstone acquired the project from NaturEner Canada Inc. in November 2021 and expects to break ground for construction in 2022.
The project assets are held by Wild Rose 2 Wind LP, a subsidiary of Capstone. This includes the Power Plant Approval for the wind farm and the Permit & License for the project substation.
Next steps for the project include:
- Finalizing the substation design with the Transimission Facility Operator, AltaLink. A minor facility amendment is anticipated, which will be communicated to stakeholders through public notice. AltaLink is expecting to begin site work o the Elkwater 264S substation in Spring 2022.
- Updating the project layout for planned wind turbine selection. Changes to the currently approved layout will be communicated to project stakeholders prior to filing the AUC amendment application.
We will also provide additional information to the community ahead of any construction activities for the Wild Rose 2 Wind project.
