Plugged In

There was a symbolic connection of new electricity being added to Alberta’s power grid as a giant ‘electrical plug’ was joined together while others held the cord at the new BluEarth Renewables Inc.’s Bull Creek wind farm northeast of Provost. There are 17 turbines nearby that have been creating electricity for sale to school boards across the province. From left on Thursday, June 9: Jared Sproule (community liaison for BluEarth), Gareth McDonald (lead development, BluEarth), Kelly Matheson-King (BluEarth’s chief operating officer), François Gagnon (associate superintendent of Fort McMurray Catholic Board of Education and chair of the Alberta Schools Commodity Purchasing Consortium), landowner Graham Hager holding the symbolic plug along with BluEarth’s president and chief executive officer Grant Arnold, landowners David Blume and David Levitt, Tyler Jans (director of development, BluEarth) Cathy Hager-Lawrence (landowner) and Geoff Carnegie (executive V.P. of development and construction).
