Willowridge Project is located close to three existing wind farms in southern Alberta and is in a well-known wind regime. The project’s land base lies in a region known as The Blue Trail, and is primarily cultivated farm land which slopes gently from a ridge top down towards the Belly River, and is between the Peigan Indian Reserve and the Blood Indian Reserve. Results from the Wind Resource Assessment Report confirm excellent wind capacity and possible generation potential.
