 A $350-million wind farm project southwest of Oyen, Alta. has filled motel rooms, campgrounds and spare bedrooms around the small farm community, giving a boost to the local economy.

The Lanfine project by Pattern Energy is near its peak construction phase, with approximately 250 contractors currently working in the area.

“I think it’s been great for the community,” said Clint Olsen.
