The Kneehill Solar Project is a 25 MWac solar facility in development in Kneehill County, Alberta, just north of the Town of Three Hills. In March 2021, Capstone purchased the early-stage project from Samsung Renewables, and is responsible for the day-to-day planning and management of the project, including overseeing final planning, financing, construction, and operation of the project. The facility achieved commercial operation in March 2023.
Every year, Kneehill Solar will generate enough electricity to power more than 6,000 average Alberta homes and offset approximately 30,000 metric tonnes of CO2e. The Sawridge First Nation, a Cree people that is an original signatory to Treaty No. 8, is an equity partner in Kneehill Solar.
