June 1 (Renewables Now) - Canadian developer Westbridge Energy Corporation (CVE:WEB) announced on Wednesday that its team originated a project for a 250-MW (AC) solar farm and a 100-MW battery energy storage system (BESS) in Alberta, Canada.

The Dolcy Solar and Battery Storage Project, sited in Alberta’s municipality of Provost, is now added to Westbridge’s portfolio, the company said.

Westbridge secured a long-term solar lease covering around 1,025 acres with private landowners for the Dolcy project. The proposal is currently in Stage 1 of the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) interconnection process, while environmental studies are underway.

With the latest addition to the portfolio, Westbridge now has four utility-scale solar projects totalling 985 MW and 300 MW of BESS sites in development. Three of the projects are solar-plus-storage schemes in Alberta, and one is a standalone solar development in Texas.
