The Opportunity

Alberta has increasingly become the key province of interest for renewable energy developers in Canada. The availability and quality of resources available in southern Alberta is only one of the reasons for this.


Throughout the latter half of 2019 and through 2020 to date, wind and solar energy developers have announced a steady stream of new projects, coming online over the next several years.


These are all significant projects all of which are within the SAAEP region - including the 465 MW Travers Solar Project (, the 117 MW Rattlesnake Ridge Wind project, the 132 MW Claresholm Solar project, and the 39 MW Burdett and Yellow Lake Solar Projects. 

Alberta is currently Canada’s leading market for renewable energy investment and a lot of that is because of the unique opportunities to secure bilateral corporate off-take agreements in the Alberta market as a result of:


  1. Alberta’s world class renewable resources, which make wind and solar cost competitive with other fossil fuel generation.

  2. Alberta’s Energy Only Market, which provides an opportunity for entrepreneurs to make investments and sell power to customers on both an hourly and a long-term basis.

  3. The TIER regulation, which provides opportunities for renewable energy generators to monetize and generate revenues from the environmental benefits they bring to the system.
