The farms and ranches in southern Alberta may not seem like fertile ground for the early adoption of new energy technology. However, southern Alberta is where Canada’s commercial wind energy industry got its start. Recently, other provinces have offered lucrative long-term contracts to attract renewable energy. Although Alberta has great wind and solar resources, a combination of low power prices and lack of such incentives has made it difficult to develop renewable-energy projects in the province. With new policies, can Alberta, Canada’s renewable energy pioneer, get back in the saddle?
