Outlaw Trail Wind Project

Project Summary

The Outlaw Trail Wind Project is BluEarth’s first development in Saskatchewan. Proposed on both private and crown lands, the project is located in the Regional Municipalities of Happy Valley and Hart Butte, approximately 5 Km north of Big Beaver Hamlet and 22 km south of Bengough.

Outreach efforts for the project began last year, when we held a public meeting in June 2016. Since then, we have been consulting with stakeholders and completing technical and environmental studies in preparation of the upcoming SaskPower Request for Proposals (RFP) process. The RFP will award long-term generation contracts for wind energy in Saskatchewan. If offered a contract and the Project obtains the necessary approvals from the Ministry of Environment, Outlaw Trail could begin construction in early 2018.

BluEarth will be submitting two project layouts as part of the RFP process.  The first has a total generating capacity of 100 MW and the second has a total generating capacity of 200 MW. The Project area is a typical prairie landscape, comprising a mosaic of cultivated cropland and pasture. Land use in the area is predominately ranching and farming.

BluEarth is committed to engaging stakeholders in the decision-making process for the Project. We believe that trust is the foundation for long-term successful relationships, and we know that trust is only earned over time, by working together with honest and transparent communications. We will be hosting a public open house on June 8, 2017 to provide an update on the project and answer any questions the community may have.  Your feedback is very important to us. Should you have any questions or comments about the Project, please call 1-844-214-2578.

  • Capacity to generate up to 200 MW of clean, renewable power
