Capital Power Corp. has entered right into a 15-year settlement with Shaw Communications Inc., a Canadian connectivity firm, for the acquisition of roughly 30 MW of renewable energy from the just lately accomplished Clydesdale Solar (75 MW) facility.

The renewable energy is bundled with 100% of the related greenhouse fuel offsets and environmental attributes generated from Shaw Communication’s share of the power’s technology output. Combined with a beforehand introduced digital power buy settlement, the Clydesdale Solar facility’s capability is now roughly 90% contracted over a 15-year time period.

“We’re excited to provide Shaw Communications with renewable power for their operations in Alberta,” says Chris Kopecky, senior vice chairman, chief authorized, improvement and industrial officer of Capital Power. “As we grow our renewables portfolio, we’re committed to developing customized solutions that empower our partners to capitalize on the benefits of clean energy. We’re proud to help expand the renewable energy capacity available to power Alberta’s economy.”

“Shaw is committed to efficiency and innovation that supports the transition to a low-carbon economy,” states Zoran Stakic, COO and CTO for Shaw. “Our new agreement with Capital Power will contribute to more environmentally friendly operations and a brighter, cleaner, and more sustainable future.”

The development of Clydesdale Solar was accomplished on schedule. Located on privately owned land within the Municipal District of Taber, Alberta, the mission is Capital Power’s second solar facility to realize industrial operations in Canada. It is projected to generate roughly 170 GWh of energy within the first 12 months of operations.
