Canada’s first generation of commercial wind turbines was installed on Cowley Ridge in southern Alberta. Going on-stream in 1993, by the end of its run the wind farm comprised 57 turbines mounted atop steel lattice towers, in total generating 16 MW of electricity. The design lifespan of the turbines was expected to be around 20 years, and they made it to 23. The entire facility was decommissioned and taken down in the spring of 2016. Most of the material from the decommissioned structures was recycled. This photo shows one of the first couple of towers to be brought down.
