Alberta government releases no-go zone map for renewable power projects

WNews 1 Min Read

The Alberta government has released some details of where and how it will permit wind and solar development, prohibiting it along a broad stretch of the province’s western edge, assessing its visual impact in five other large areas and restricting it on agricultural land.

“Wind projects are no longer permitted in the buffer zones due to the impact of their vertical footprint,” said Affordability and Utilities ministry spokeswoman Ashley Stevenson.

“With agricultural lands, development is still permitted as long as the project can coexist with livestock or crops.”

The new restrictions will apply only to renewable energy development.
