Project Location

The Burdett Solar Project is located on privately owned land in the County of Forty Mile, approximately 1.5 km southwest of Burdett, Alberta.

Project Development

With decades of experience, we have a team of internal experts to take projects from conception and make them a reality. Our team works in close consultation with government agencies and key stakeholders to site, build and operate our facilities responsibly.

On July 28, we announced that BluEarth signed power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Bullfrog Power and the Royal Bank of Canada for the Yellow Lake and Burdett Solar Project. These PPAs will directly support the construction of this Project, which is expected to begin at the end of August. The Project is expected to be operational in April 2021. Construction of the Burdett Solar Project will be completed in conjunction with the Yellow Lake Solar Project, which is also located in the County of Forty Mile.

Project Schedule:

  • Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) Approval – completed
  • AUC Permit Administrative Amendments – completed
  • Municipal Development Permit – completed (extension received May 2020)
  • Project Construction – expected to begin August 2020
  • Commercial Operations – April 2021 (expected)

We are 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.

Project Infrastructure

The Burdett Solar Project will involve the installation of solar photovoltaic panels, panel racking systems, internal access roads, cabling, electrical inverters and other related electrical equipment. The Project equipment will be contained within a single quarter section of land. The exact location of the Project infrastructure within the property has yet to be confirmed and will be determined through additional studies, equipment procurement and engineering designs.

The Project will connect to a local electrical distribution line from the Burdett 368S substation. This connection will be through overhead or underground cables and is expected to be in close proximity to the substation.
