Bonnybrook Energy Centre - Project Benefits

Bonnybrook Energy Centre will offer a number of benefits including:

  • a reliable, cost-effective source of new electricity supply for southern Alberta
  • lower electricity costs through reduction of exposure to volatile energy markets for ENMAX Energy retail customers
  • reduction of line losses and associated greenhouse gas emissions from long distance transmission lines by locating electrical generation close to customer demand
  • enhancement of local and regional reliability of power supply
  • creation of construction and operations jobs
  • removal of a wastewater storage lagoon from an industrial site
  • utilization of wastewater from the Canada Malting facility instead of using fresh water

Bonnybrook will be built on the Canada Malting site at 3316 Bonnybrook Rd. S.E., east of Ogden Road in an industrial-zoned area in southeast Calgary. The total facility footprint on this site will be about five to seven acres. Although the initial operational date was planned for June 2014, recent changes in near term market conditions have impacted the schedule. The new operational date for the Bonnybrook Energy Centre is anticipated to be June 2016.

All customers are free to purchase natural gas services from the default supply provider or from a retailer of their choice and to purchase electricity services from the regulated rate provider or from a retailer of their choice. The delivery of natural gas and electricity to you is not affected by your choice. If you change who you purchase natural gas services or electricity services from, you will continue receiving natural gas and electricity from the distribution company in your service area.
