ACHIEVING ENVIRONMENTAL OBJECTIVES
Building Alberta’s future clean energy grid today
Brazeau advances an opportunity to more quickly ramp up renewables as we transition off coal.
Detailed environmental analysis is underway. As part of planning for the project we are preparing and will release a comprehensive report on any impacts of the proposed project as it is designed. We will share that here and in project updates, so sign up on the home page to stay connected.
Expanding Brazeau hydro by up to900 MW could result in some significant reduction to our carbon footprint in Alberta. This includes:
- Removing over 200 million tonnes of greenhouse gases over the project life.
- Enough clean power to remove the equivalent of over 465,000 cars removed from the road.
Generating 900 MW of renewable power in any given hour is enough to power the equivalent of one major city like Calgary or Edmonton.
