Alberta Solar One (9.5 MW planned)

Alberta Solar One

Alberta Solar One Inc. is proposing to develop a 9.5-megawatt (MW) solar energy project in the County of Forty Mile, called Alberta Solar One (Project). The Project is approximately four kilometres west of the hamlet of Burdett, Alberta. The Project will occupy approximately 50 percent of quarter section NE-21 10-12-W4M near the intersection of Range Road 123 and Township Road 104.

The Project is developed by Alberta Solar One Inc., a joint venture between Enbridge Inc. and Morgan Solar, Inc. The Project will use Morgan Solar Inc.’s SimbaX modules on Savanna dual-axis PV trackers. This means that the solar modules will rotate with the sun’s movement.

The project will involve the installation of solar photovoltaic panels, solar tracker mounting systems, internal access roads, cabling, electrical inverter/transformers, grid interconnection, and other related electrical equipment. The project will connect to Fortis Alberta’s local electrical distribution grid from Burdett 386S substation via overhead power lines parallel to Township Road 104, running approximately 400m.

Plant Location: Burdett, Alberta
AC Size: 9.5MW (Planned)
Description: Morgan Solar SimbaX modules on Savanna trackers.
