2019 Regional Economic Impact Report

in December 2019 SAAEP released a study that calculated the projected regional economic benefits across nine wind and solar energy projects across the region.  The projects, either under construction or with construction anticipated to begin in 2020 and 2021, are located across a wide area, from Pincher Creek to Taber. Regional economic impacts, from a combination of factors including taxes, land leases, and employment, is estimated at $240M CAD dollars between 2019 and 2022. Other projects that those profiled are also being built so this number is conservative.
