Renewable Electricity Program
The Government of Alberta (GOA) has tasked the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) to develop and implement a program to bring on new renewable generation capacity over the period to 2030. The GOA has requested that the AESO provide draft recommendations on its plan in May 2016.
Following GOA approval, the AESO expects to continue development of the program throughout 2016. The first competition is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of 2016, with the first projects to be in service by 2019.
