EDF EN Canada Inc., a subsidiary of EDF Energies Nouvelles Group, reports the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) has approved its proposed 77.5 megawatt (MWAC) solar photovoltaic (PV) Vulcan Solar Hybrid Energy Centre Vulcan Solar Project near the community of Carmangay. Approval is subject to provisions by the Hydro and Electric Energy Act and the Alberta Utilities Commission Act.

The Vulcan Solar is located within the footprint of the 300MW Blackspring Ridge Wind Project and, upon completion and will be the first utility scale Hybrid Renewable Energy Project in Canada and one of the largest hybrid facilities in North America. The project will utilize 300,000 ground-mounted solar PV panels and generate sufficient electric power for 12,000 residences and business. It will also offset over 85,000 metric tpy of CO2 emissions. The power will be sold into the Alberta Power Pool. The project is expected to begin construction in Spring 2017.
