Lone Pine Wind Farm

Project Overview

The Lone Pine Wind Farm ('the Project') is a proposed wind energy project located in Kneehill County, about 13 km west of Three Hills, Alberta. The Project has applied to the Alberta Electric System Operator to connect 466 megawatts (MW) of generating capacity to the grid. The current design for the Project will have a generating capacity of up to 350 MW, enough to power approximately 149,000 average Alberta homes each year. Further land expansion is underway to ensure the Project will be able to generate the remaining electricity needed to achieve 466 MW. The Project will generate significant revenue for the local community while resulting in minimal land take for the Project footprint, allowing farmers to diversify their income from the land.

The Project is being developed by Lone Pine Wind Project LP, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Capstone Infrastructure Corporation ('Capstone').

Project Benefits

The project is anticipated to produce nearly 1,300,000 megawatt hours per year which is enough to supply electricity over the course of a year for about 149,000 average Albertan homes annually. The project will add emission-free, affordable, renewable energy to the provincial energy supply mix, avoiding an estimated 461,000 MTCO2e at the start of commercial operation. In addition, it will also provide the following economic benefits to the local community:
