Up to 19 turbines
Up to 100 MW
The project is located in the Rural Municipality of Eye Hill No. 382, approximately 6 km southwest of Denzil, SK and 20 km southeast of Macklin, SK. The project area is comprised of cultivated cropland and pasture, and land use in the area is predominately ranching and farming.
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.

BluEarth Renewables first began outreach efforts on this Project in 2017. Since then, our team has installed a 120 metre meteorological tower to measure wind speeds and determine the unique wind characteristics in the area. In addition, we have completed a preliminary environmental analysis for the site and a preliminary geotechnical analysis to ensure the Project minimizes impacts to the natural environment and that we understand the subsurface soil conditions. We have also met with local council members to explain the benefits of a wind facility.
In the coming months, our team plans to continue stakeholder outreach and collect detailed environmental field data to progress the development of the site.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
The global wind industry collectively continues to engage with experts in science, medicine and occupational and environmental health to monitor ongoing credible research in the area of wind turbines and human health (CanWEA, 2018). Health Canada published its own study in 2014, which found that wind turbine noise exposure was not associated with self-reported medical illnesses and health conditions.
We understand some individuals have concerns about wind facility construction and operation and we take these concerns seriously. The Outlaw Trail Wind Project has been designed to meet or exceed all provincial regulations and guidelines in place to protect human health.
Below are studies on the relationship between wind turbines and human health:

The noise emissions produced by a wind turbine vary depending on the model and size. As there are currently no regulatory requirements for noise control in Saskatchewan, we are completing detailed noise modeling on the project to align to the Alberta Utilities Commission regulatory requirement of 40dBA at night time at all residences. This is the strictest noise regulation in Canada. The sound pressure level of 40dBA is considered comparable to a quiet library.
Wind turbines occupy a small fraction of the land on which they are sited, so they work in harmony with existing and established land uses. In rural settings, farming and ranching continue undisturbed. Livestock, such as sheep, cows and horses, can continue to graze around the towers. In fact, wind energy helps create a healthier environment by not emitting greenhouse gases or air pollutants, and using no freshwater to generate electricity.
The most comprehensive study on wind facilities and property values to-date was conducted by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The study analyzed more than 50,000 home sales near 67 wind facilities across nine U.S. states over ten years and found no statistical evidence that operating wind facilities have had any measurable impacts on home sale prices.
