Arrangements were made in January 2009 for a landowners meeting to be held on March 4th, 2009 with the executives of Algonquin Power Trust. They were in attendance to give details of the proposed wind farm south of Pangman.
As a result of this meeting 65 quarters of land were signed on which Algonquin Power Trust has the option to install wind farm infrastructure.
A meteorological tower was erected June 22nd and 23rd, 2009 2 1/2 miles south of the east entrance to Pangman. The tower will be in place for 3 to 5 years collecting data for wind direction and speed.
Landowners of the project are all aware that the proposed wind farm will only come to fruition if and when Sask. Power awards Algonquin Power Trust a Power Purchase Agreement.
Algonquin Power Trust plans to pursue the development of this project further with the support of local landowners, the community, municipal government, wind regime and transmission line capacity. If an agreement can be made with Sask. Power and Algonquin Power Trust the community, the Rural Municipality and the landowners will benefit.
