Canada: Barlow Trail Solar – Alberta
DP Energy is developing two adjacent solar projects on brownfield sites in Southeast Calgary with a combined generation capacity of 55 MW.
Barlow Trail Solar is the first of two adjacent solar projects being developed in Southeast Calgary on capped phosphogypsum stacks owned by Viterra Inc. Solar power generation offers a productive use of the sites that would otherwise have limited development potential. The projects will use a ballasted foundation system to ensure the integrity of the stacks are maintained and the clear, level surfaces of the sites offer an excellent installation platform.
Land Use Amendment and Development Permit applications were submitted for the project in July 2018.
