Monday, May 08, 2017
A British Columbia-based renewable energy company is expanding its reach into Alberta.
Pinnacle Renewable Energy, the largest Canadian producer of wood pellets, announced in early May that it has chosen Entwistle, Alta., as the home for its first Alberta venture.
Pinnacle Renewable Energy said that the Entwistle manufacturing plant, its seventh such facility, will be the largest in the company’s roster. Preparation for the manufacturing facility began on May 1 with operations expected to start in early 2018. The planned facility will be located one kilometre east of downtown Entwistle, according to Parkland County staff.
