The company says a memorandum of understanding with the city includes a prospective 10-year, 42-megawatt energy supply agreement.
Aurora says the new facility, to be named “Aurora Sun,” will be the size of 21 football fields and 50 per cent larger than its “Aurora Sky” operation at Edmonton International Airport.
Once in operation, Aurora says the new facility will boost its total capacity to more than 430,000 kilograms per year.
The company currently operates facilities in Mountain View County, Alta., and in Pointe-Claire on Montreal’s West Island. It is also completing a facility in Lachute, Que.
