PROPOSED PROJECT DETAILS

CREEKSIDE SOLAR

Voltarix Group Inc. (VGI) is planning a 24.9 megawatt (MW) solar power Project on a privately owned greenfield site near the intersection of Township Road 494 and Range Road 271 at the legally described address NW24 49 27 W4. The planned Creekside Solar Project (the Project) is approximately one kilometre south of Calmar, Alberta in the jurisdiction of Leduc County. The land is agriculturally (AG) zoned and allows utility scale solar as a discretionary use under Utility Service, Major and contributes to Municipal, Provincial and Federal sustainability goals. 

As Alberta phases out coal-fired power plants, the Creekside Solar Project will contribute meaningful renewable energy to meet electricity demand on the local distribution grid. The Project will generate roughly 32,500 megawatt hours of energy, offsetting approximately 5,000 homes electricity needs and displacing 17,150 tonnes of carbon from the environment, working towards Alberta’s goal of sourcing 30% of the province’s electricity from renewable sources by 2030.

MOON LAKE

Voltarix Group Inc. (VGI) is planning a 20 megawatt (MW) solar power Project on a privately owned greenfield site near the intersection of Cowboy Trail (HW22) and Township Road 514. The proposed Moon Lake Solar Project (the Project) is approximately twenty kilometres north of Drayton Valley, Alberta.

As Alberta phases out coal-fired power plants, the Moon Lake Solar Project will contribute meaningful renewable energy to meet electricity demand on the local distribution grid. The Project will generate roughly 28,000 megawatt hours of energy, offsetting approximately 4,500 homes and working towards Alberta’s goal of sourcing 30% of the province’s electricity from renewable sources by 2030.

About the Project
Image

Creekside Solar is a proposed utility scale ground mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) development covering 140 acres of land. The Project will include approximately 41,500 angled solar modules installed on steel pile foundations and fixed steel racking to a height of 8ft. The entire property will be secured by permanent perimeter chainlink fencing.

VGI will use electrical inverters to change energy collected by the solar modules from direct current to alternating current in order to transmit it to Fortis Alberta’s existing distribution power lines. No new towers or power poles will be required for the Project, and the regular operation of the facility will be nearly silent.

Consultation will continue throughout the project's development, construction and operation phases.

Moon Lake Solar is a proposed utility scale ground mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) development covering 120 acres of land. The Project will include approximately 41,500 angled solar modules installed on steel pile foundations and fixed steel racking to a height of 8ft. The entire property will be secured by permanent perimeter chainlink fencing.

VGI will use four inverters to change energy collected by the solar modules from direct current to alternating current in order to transmit it to Fortis Alberta’s existing distribution power lines. No new towers or power poles will be required for the Project, and the regular operation of the facility will be nearly silent.

Community Benefits

Stimulating Economy
We employ local labor and increase demand for local accommodations and services through every stage, from assessment through to long-term operations. Local farmers will be employed to assist with agriculture uses between rows of solar. 
MUNICIPAL TAX REVENUE
The project will provide ongoing tax revenue to Leduc County at a much higher rate than the existing agriculture land use without adding any capital cost or burden to the community for municipal services, such as management, water or wastewater services.
green energy
Solar projects improve the environment by generating emissions-free electricity, and result in meaningful offsets of fossil fuel generation, lowering Leduc County's carbon footprint with no negative impacts to the existing land.
LOCAL GENERATION
Electricity consumed in the area where it is harvested results in greater grid stability and reduced losses of energy that comes from transmitting power over longer distances. Support of the project is a signficant step for Calmar & Leduc County in acheiving their sustainability goals.
