Background

Cascade Power began planning the Cascade Power Project in January 2018[2] and had an open house for the local public in August 2018[3]. Later that year, Cascade Power submitted regulatory approval documents.[4]

In August 2019, Cascade Power said approvals for the project were moving slower than anticipated due to concerns by people with First Nations and the Alberta Utilities Commission.[5] Alberta Utilities Commission approved the project in November 2019,[1] and Cascade Power said they were still expecting to break ground early in 2020.[6]

In February 2020, Power Technology reported that construction was "expected to begin in the second quarter of the year."[7]
