PROPOSED PROJECT DETAILS

MOON LAKE

Voltarix Group Inc. (VGI) is planning a 24.9 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 33,000 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.

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

Moon Lake 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.

Proposed Moon Lake site
Consultation will continue throughout the project's development, construction and operation phases.

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
Image
Stimulating Economy
We employ local labor and increase demand for local accommodations and services through every stage, from assessment through to long-term operations.
MUNICIPAL TAX REVENUE
The project will provide ongoing tax revenue to the County without adding cost or burden to the community for municipal services, such as water or wastewater services.
green energy
Solar projects improve air quality by generating emissions-free electricity, and result in meaningful offsets of fossil fuel generation, lowering Alberta’s carbon footprint.
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.
