About the Project
Alberta No. 1 the province's first conventional geothermal heat and power facility and a signature Terrapin energy project. Located in the Municipal District of Greenview, Alberta No. 1 is proudly being built in Alberta by Albertans.
The Alberta No. 1 name is a nod to Leduc No. 1, the site of Alberta's major oil discovery in 1947. This name was chosen to signify how Alberta's legacy in oil and gas can be used for a renewable energy frontier. Due to its location in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin and its existing assets and expertise, Alberta is uniquely positioned to become a leader in the geothermal space, and Alberta No. 1 is leading this next chapter of the province's energy story.
The Alberta No. 1 geothermal energy project is owned by the No. 1 Geothermal Limited Partnership and developed by Terrapin Geothermics.
The project is seeking additional equity investors. Contact us for more information.
The project will consist of a wellfield, a binary cycle electrical generation plant, and district heating infrastructure.
