Taylor Hydro

The Taylor facility is a run-of-river hydroelectric facility with installed capacity of 13 MW, and is located adjacent to the Taylor Coulee Chute on the Waterton St. Mary Headworks Irrigation Canal System, which is owned by the Government of Alberta. The wholly-owned facility utilizes a horizontal Andritz Kaplan turbine and a GE generator. This facility began commercial operations in May 2000. Generation from this facility will be subject to the terms of a TransAlta PPA that terminates in 2033. Management believes that the estimated annual gross generation from the facility will be approximately 39 GWh.
