Going green: Enmax wins federal contract for renewable energy in Alberta

This is an excerpt of an article posted on CBC News.

Enmax Energy Corp. has been awarded a five-year contract worth $131 million to supply the government of Canada’s electricity needs in Alberta. There is a provision for a one-year extension.

The energy company is to provide electricity to 11 government departments, four military bases and Corrections Canada facilities.

‘Very important here in Alberta’

“It is my understanding that this is the first contract in this regard involving the Department of National Defence and our operations,” Associate Defence Minister Kent Hehr said Friday.

“It will be very important here in Alberta. This handles much of our military operations (and), much of our other government departments here.”

Hehr said it will be “a big step forward in helping us reduce emissions by 40 per cent by 2030.”
