12 MW Solar PV Project
SunAlta Power has entered into a JV partnership with Irricana Power Generation to develop a 12 MW distribution-connected Solar PV generating facility approximately 14 KMs southeast of the Town of Bassano. When fully operational this project would supply the Alberta electrical grid with approximately 17.6 GWh of renewable electricity every year.
The project is located in the NE 17-20-17 W4M and will occupy approximately 97 acres near the intersection of Township Road 174 and Range Road 203, east of the Eastern Irrigation District canal.
Proposed Site/Facility Layout
The project has been designed to optimize the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) within the limitations of the project site and local electrical distribution infrastructure. The preliminary design uses 30,680 solar PV module & 74 inverters.
