PPA Contract

AltaGas' 102-megawatt Bear Mountain Wind Park, located near Dawson Creek, is British Columbia's first fully-operational wind park. In October 2009 the Park was commissioned and fully connected to the B.C. power grid. Today it delivers enough electricity to power most of B.C.'s South Peace region. The power from the project is sold to BC Hydro under a 25-year contract. Bear Mountain Wind Park features a single row of 34 3-MW Enercon E-82 wind turbine generators. Each turbine is 78-metres tall to the hub. The site, which covers approximately 25 hectares, is still used for cattle grazing and by the public for hiking, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and other recreational activities.
