Incentive for wind energy developers to foster strong, trusted partnerships with host landowners in Alberta

When it comes to the placement of wind energy turbines, developers do not have the same rights with respect to accessing land as those provided for oil and gas development under the Surface Rights Act . Landowners are able to veto the placement of wind energy turbines on their property. However, due to the impacts of infrastructure required to connect projects to the grid, wind energy developers have learned that it is in their best interest to engage with communities as a whole, in addition to the individual landowners hosting turbines on their land. For this additional infrastructure, such as substations or distribution and transmission lines, a right of entry process comes into play under the Surface Rights Act. This means that the voluntary decision by a landowner to host a power plant has the potential to have broader implications for the landowner and neighbours.
