Pumped-storage hydro project to be developed in Alberta

Turning Point Generation (TPG) plans to develop an 80-MW to 150-MW pumped-storage hydroelectric project in Alberta, Canada.

TPG has identified several potential sites for the unnamed plant, which is the company’s first pumped-storage project.

Once a site is secured, TPG will move ahead with the development.
