Solas Energy, a leader in providing comprehensive strategy and consulting services for renewable energy solutions, extends its warmest congratulations to EDF Renewables Canada on its recent dedication of the Cypress 1 & 2 Wind Projects in Cypress County, Alberta. The projects, which are sited on traditional territory of the Kanai/Blood Tribe, have a total capacity of 247 MW of electricity generated by 48 wind turbines.

Paula McGarrigle, President and CEO, Solas Energy – Canada, shared, “The Cypress 1 & 2 Wind Projects are a testament to the power of collaboration in the clean energy transition. We are proud to have played a role in providing environmental work, regulatory guidance, and permitting support for this remarkable endeavour. EDF Renewables Canada’s commitment to innovation and sustainability sets a commendable example for the industry.”

“Seeing the wind turbines in full operation, after nearly eight years of hard work from our team, is definitely satisfying,” added Mark Gallager, Director of Development for EDF Renewables Canada. “We set out with a team goal to deliver clean, renewable power that would also garner local community support.  I’m very proud to affirm that everyone involved was committed to this shared goal. The significance of meaningful engagement has proven vital to project’s success. We thank Solas Energy for their role in supporting this important project.” The Cypress 1 and 2 wind power projects represents a total investment of approximately C$365 million and have the capacity to generate enough zero-emission energy to power the equivalent of 120,000 average homes, contributing to Alberta’s clean energy landscape and bringing the province closer to a low-carbon future.
