• ENMAX Greenpower and Pristine Power have reported that they have commenced commercial operations at the Energy Recovery Generation project situated near Kamloops, B.C. The five-megawatt Enpower Development Inc. project at Savona, sees the capture of waste heat from the Spectra Energy Transmission West compressor station on its natural gas pipeline and converts it to pressurized vapour to drive a turbine. Another five-megawatt Energy Recovery Generation project at 150 Mile House, north of Kamloops, should begin operations in late September. Both projects have an approximate cost of $31.5 million.
  • It is reported that Sky Harvest Windpower and Keewatin Windpower would like to develop two wind power projects that would yield approximately 300 MW of power. Keewatin holds rights to approximately 2,000 acres of Crown land situated in Saskatchewan and Sky Harvest leases a proposed site from private owners. Sky Harvest's site can support a project as large or larger than the proposed 150MW project on Keewatin's site. Keewatin has retained Golder Associates Ltd. to complete an environmental assessment of the Keewatin site. Sky Harvest revealed that it would like to complete its cost analysis and environmental research in the next several months to enable it to submit an application for the projects on both sites when SaskPower is expected to issue a request for proposals.
