CanWEA Stands Ready To Work With New Alberta Elected Officials
April 18, 2019
The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) is congratulating Premier-Designate Jason Kenney and his United Conservative Party (UCP) team on their majority win in Tuesday’s election in Alberta.
CanWEA looks forward to working with the new government to ensure market-driven approaches are in place that will capture the full value of the province’s “exceptional” wind resources, the association says.
With 1,483 MW, Alberta is home to 12% of total installed wind capacity in Canada, and its approximately 900 wind turbines meet about 7% of provincial electricity demand, says CanWEA.
