Introduction Letter

January 4, 2023

RE: Legal Solar Project

Dear Neighbour; 

Canwest Solar Development Corp and Starlight Energy are proposing to construct a solar energy facility with 125 megawatts of total generating capacity (the “Project”).  The Project area is approximately 8 km west of the Town of Legal on privately owned land. 

The Project would generate enough renewable energy to avoid approximately 145,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, equivalent to power over 38,000 homes.  

Project Information Package

Included with this letter are documents that provide additional information about the Project including:

  • a newsletter with greater detail about the proposed Project; 
  • a site-specific map which includes the location of key infrastructure components;
  • a regional map showing the proposed connection to the electrical grid;
  • a map showing the results of our sound assessment; and
  • a brochure published by the Alberta Utilities Commission outlining the public involvement process for utility developments.
