    This please and thank you.
    That would have been a no-brainer if the powerplant was still operating - free waste heat.
    Though with the electrical substation still there, cogeneration might still make sense.

      It's still EPCOR's.

      The Rossdale Power Plant is owned by EPCOR Utilities Inc. As part of the River Crossing initiative, the City of Edmonton is working with EPCOR on a transfer of land in Rossdale that would see the power plant come into City ownership. This would be a step towards bringing new life to the power plant complex as part of a broader activation of this culturally and historically significant portion of the river valley.

      i thought that transaction/transfer had been completed.

      apologies to you and the thread for being wrong.

      as it's not done, i will be more than a little interested to see how - if? - that does get resolved

      • I wasn't 100% sure on whether it had been done yet or not. I do know the City isn't being very cooperative when it comes to doing these land swaps lately.
        Giving less of a damn than ever… Can't laugh at the ignorant if you ignore them!

        • Today we submitted our phase one feasibility report

          to our friends at the City of Edmonton.

          We hired the brightest minds in the urban gondola industry and collaborated with the City and its agencies. We all worked diligently to gather the facts, figures, and data that would inform a GO or a NO GO decision on our project.

          The feasibility work was initiated to demonstrate the economic and technical viability of the project. We were prepared, should something catastrophic be uncovered by the experts, to pull the plug.

          The approach to arriving at a GO or a NO GO decision alongside our stakeholders was important to our investors, as well as the City and our elected officials. We have been steadfast with our intent to move forward in a way that maximizes public benefit. To achieve this, each and every stakeholder needs to be presented with the straight goods.

          I am a very optimistic ‘anything is possible’ person. I was the first person to invest in Prairie Sky at a time when we had no plan and no real insight into whether the project could actually work. I just believed in it. And, so did many others.

          Both technically in terms of infrastructure, and economically in terms of private industry’s capacity to get this done right, our phase one feasibility report tells a compelling story. It’s a GO.

          I can’t thank the individuals, companies, and public agencies that rolled up their sleeves to enable us enough. Without the level of engagement we had during the last six months I would be left wondering about the quality of our feasibility work. Luckily, I’m not worried at all.

          Every morning when I get out of bed I am excited by the real possibility that Edmonton could beat Burnaby, BC and Toronto, ON and be the first major Canadian city to have an urban gondola. It is not a matter of ‘IF’ the infrastructure is coming to the urban setting, it is a simple matter who will get there first.

          Today we have a robust plan and the capacity to execute. We also have the straight goods.

          We are looking forward to continuing the discussion with the City and Mayor and Council on next steps.

            Yup.

            This sounds to Top_Dawg like the grandpappy of all money pits.

              maybe if you spent more time paying attention to that end of anatomy instead of the other end it wouldn't sound like that?
