Three companies have been chosen by the government of Alberta to build four          wind-power projects in southern Alberta. The plants will be able to generate 600 megawatts of renewable energy but will cost a billion dollars to construct.

Chief Roy Fox of the Blood Tribe in southern Alberta has expressed interest in this project, this will guarantee a boosted economy and wider employment opportunities for Indigenous people.

The province is setting a goal of adding up to 5,000 megawatts of renewable energy by 2030.

This would account for 30% of the electricity in Alberta.
