June 10 (Renewables Now) - Renewables developer Enel Green Power announced on Thursday it has started the main construction phase of the 152-MW Grizzly Bear Creek wind project in Alberta, Canada.

With 34 wind turbines, Grizzly Bear Creek will be capable of producing 528 GWh of clean power per year, enough to meet the annual electricity demands of more than 73,000 local households.

Grizzly Bear Creek is the company’s fourth wind park in Alberta, bringing its total installed capacity to over 360 MW in the province, the renewable energy developer said.

The construction site is located in the counties of Minburn and Vermilion River. The wind facility is expected to come online by the end of the year.

At present, Enel Green Power has three operational wind plants in Canada -- Castle Rock Ridge I and II, with 105 MW of capacity, and the 105-MW Riverview wind farm. All three are based in the Pincher Creek area, southern Alberta.
