DP Energy is developing two adjacent solar projects on brownfield sites in Southeast Calgary with a combined generation capacity of 64 MW.
Barlow Solar Park 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 Redesignation and Development Permit approvals were granted by the City of Calgary for the project in 2019 and the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) approval followed in 2020.
