Rainbow Lake Cogeneration and Peaking Facility
The 90 megawatt Rainbow Lake Cogeneration and Peaking Facility is adjacent to a gas plant owned and operated at Husky Oil at Rainbow Lake, 900 kilometers north of Edmonton. It is jointly owned by ATCO Power Ltd. and Husky Oil Operations Ltd. and steam produced by the plant is used by Husky’s gas plant. Electricity is sold in the Power Pool of Alberta. The Rainbow Lake Cogeneration Plant’s location in northern Alberta results in improved reliability and significantly reduces line losses in a relatively remote part of the province.
