Background

In February 2010, the Alberta Utilities Commission gave the go-ahead for TC Energy to build and operate the Saddlebrook power station, whic would contain "one gas-fired combustion turbine generator and one steam turbine generator".[1] In April 2012, TC Energy put the power plant on hold.[2] The Western Electricity Coordinating Council announced in a 2013 Annual Progress Report that the Saddlebrook Power Station was cancelled[3], but the Alberta Utilities Commission gave TC Energy an extension in 2015 until 2021 to complete construction.[4]
