The Hanna Solar Project, a 120MW, $162M solar generation private/public partnership, is being targeted for construction in 2020. The revenue from this project would enable the establishment of the Hanna Community Coal Transition Fund, a local economic development and competitive fund which would be directly supported through the municipal portion of the net project revenues.

The Project will generate annual income to the Hanna Community Coal Transition Fund, designed to help the Town of Hanna and its workers transition away from coal and create over 200 construction jobs to directly support the province’s worker retraining program for coal-affected workers.
