The Oyen 1 Project, is a ground solar project developed by Universal Kraft Canada Renewables, located approximately 13.2 km north west of the Town of Oyen, Alberta, in Special Area No. 3.
In development since early 2023, the project with consist of almost 672,000 solar panels that will produce up to 400 MWac. The energy produced, capable to power approximately 300,000 homes, will be connected to the Alberta Interconnected Electric System (AIES).
The Project is wholly located on privately owned, cultivated land with a strong solar resource, characteristic of Alberta, and will generate clean energy over its 30+ year lifetime.
We strive to be a good neighbour, and work closely with the community to identify areas of opportunity and concern. The Project will have many community benefits, including the following:
Local Employment: up to 150 direct jobs, and close to 100 full time jobs indirectly during construction. During operations, the Project will provide five permanent full-time jobs.
Local Economic Boost: local businesses will experience increased activity due to the spin-off opportunities created by the Project during development, construction, and operations.
Property Taxes: The Project will pay annual property taxes to the County, resulting in financial benefits to the community.
Clean Energy Generation: The Project will generate emissions-free electricity for approximately 300,000 homes.
