Saddlebrook power station is a proposed 398-megawatt (MW) gas-fired power plant in the province of Alberta, Canada.
As of November 2019, the project has not progressed in more than four years and appears to be cancelled.
The map below shows the approximate location of the proposed power station in north of High River, the province of Alberta, Canada.
In February 2010, the Alberta Utilities Commission gave the go-ahead for TransCanada to build and operate the Saddlebrook power station, whic would contain "one gas-fired combustion turbine generator and one steam turbine generator". In April 2012, TransCanada put the power plant on hold. The Western Electricity Coordinating Council announced in a 2013 Annual Progress Report that the Saddlebrook Power Station was cancelled, but the Alberta Utilities Commission gave TransCanada an extension in 2015 until 2021 to complete construction.
