Quality Wind and Halkirk Wind Facilities

In 2013, the Quality Wind (Tumbler Ridge, B.C.) and Halkirk Wind (Halkirk, AB) power facilities saw their first full calendar year of operations. Throughout the year, we took steps to remain in contact with stakeholders and communities.

Halkirk Wind

In Halkirk, we invited all project leaseholders to a dinner and information event to thank them for their support during construction, share the successes of the first six months of operations, and provide information on the ongoing reclamation efforts. Capital Power also continued its support of the annual Halkirk Elks Bullarama and interacted with stakeholders at the event.

Quality Wind

At Quality Wind, team members continued our relationship with First Nations previously engaged during the permitting and construction of the project. Capital Power team members met with the Councils of the Saulteau First Nations and West Moberly First Nations during the year and, in August, attended a community event during the Annual General Assembly of the McLeod Lake Indian Band. The company extended a contract with West Moberly for snow clearing and road maintenance.

In July, Capital Power participated in a community forum on seeking a designation for Tumbler Ridge to become an authorized Geopark.

A Geopark is an area recognized by the UNESCO-supported Global Geopark Network to have exceptional geological heritage. The designation recognizes that the area has a natural landscape good for education, has a significant scientific value, and is particularly rare or simply beautiful to look at.

The initiative is supported by industry and the following community groups with which Capital Power has established relationships:

  • the Wolverine Nordic and Mountain Society
  • the Peace River Regional Palaeontological Centre
  • the Tumbler Ridge Museum
Halkirk Wind, AB.
