400 MW Procurement - Travers Solar
1. 400 MW of Flexible Scalability
Large enough for any demand, customizable to yours. At 400 MW, Travers will be Canada’s largest solar facility producing a significant amount of power capable of offsetting Alberta’s largest power loads. Solar’s scalability means that smaller commercial and industrial loads can contract.
2. Most Efficient Solar in Canada
According to CanSIA, “Alberta receives more hours of sunshine than Miami, Florida in the summer months.” Additionally, Travers has a comparable solar potential to parts of Florida.
3. Best Buildable Attributes
Travers has flat and simple topography, a short and inexpensive interconnection, and very few constraints on nearly 500 acres of contiguous lands.
4. Lowest Environmental Impact
Travers 400 MW Solar project has been independently validated by environmental agencies as one of the lowest impact project in Alberta. For a project of this magnitude to have low environmental impact not only paves the way for easy development but also has low chances of objections. **WWF Approved if we can validate the approval on some level.**
5. Great Story! Largest Impact on Grid Emissions
400 MW of solar will have a huge impact on our emission intensive grid that currently rivals China. Alberta has a significant coal fleet and growing natural gas fleet. These fossil-fuel power plants drive a significant intensity of emissions in Alberta’s electric grid.
