The Bemersyde Wind Project is a proposed project located in the Rural Municipalities of Chester No. 125 and Golden West No. 95. Located just south of the hamlet of Peebles, this project will install between 20-75 wind turbine generators. The project has been in development since 2009 and will be submitted in response to SaskPower's current procurement for new wind generation capacity in November 2020. The project benefits from an excellent wind resource and is in close proximity to existing transmission infrastructure. If successful, the Bemersyde Wind Project would be expected to be operational by December, 2023.

Approximately 60 landowners have agreed to participate in the project across approximately 35,000 acres of land. The location and lands which will host the Bemersyde Wind Project are highly compatible with the construction and operation of a successful wind project.
The Bemersyde project has been in development over a decade. During this time, extensive community outreach has occurred with numerous open houses, presentations to council, and meetings with numerous First Nation communities. The project team continues to be involved in the community and appreciates the close-knit, family oriented focus. The Bemersyde Wind Farm is looking forward to continuing to build on the great relationships that have been established and appreciate the strong and continued community support it has received.
