Pe-na-koyim Wind Project

The proposed Pe-na-koyim Wind Project is being developed in partnership by the Kainai/Blood Tribe and EDF Renewables Canada Inc. The proposed Project is entirely located on Blood Tribe reserve lands and co-located on the existing Blood Tribe Agricultural Project (BTAP) head lease for agricultural production. The location of the proposed project is approximately 6 km south-west of the residentially occupied areas in the City of Lethbridge, Alberta.

The proposed Project will build and operate a new wind generation facility with a maximum potential permitted capacity of up to 497 megawatts (MW)s, comprising of modern new wind turbine generators (WTG), 34.5-kilovolt (kV) collector system, collection substation which includes two 34.5 kV to 240 kV step-up transformers, meteorological towers, operations and maintenance (O&M) building, and any associated electrical infrastructure. The Project will consist of up to seventy-one wind turbine locations, each with a turbine capacity up to 7.2 MW.
