Spring Coulee Solar Project Begins Commercial Operations

March 26, 2024

Evolugen, the Canadian renewable energy platform of Brookfield, announced in February that commercial operations have begun on Spring Coulee Solar Project (the Project), which is the first utility solar facility in Alberta to be operated and managed by Evolugen.

The 42 MWdc solar farm, located northeast of Cardston, Alberta, is expected to generate close to 70 GWh of renewable electricity annually, the equivalent of powering approximately 9,850 Alberta homes per year. Building on Evolugen’s track record of development expertise, in collaboration with our partners, the Project was completed on time and on budget following groundbreaking in April 2023.

Scotiabank will purchase electricity and associated environmental attributes from the Project through the 15-year power purchase agreement announced in February 2022 as part of its approach to decarbonizing its operations and supporting clients in the transition to a low-carbon economy.

PCL Solar, a highly reputable and experienced contractor in the renewable energy sector, acted as the prime contractor for the Project. PCL expertly managed the engineering, procurement and construction of the project, overseeing a peak workforce of 200 employees and contractors in alignment with Evolugen’s commitment to health and safety and handing over a high-quality project.
