A gas-fired electricity generating plant proposed for the Genesee site southwest of Stony Plain has been approved by the provincial utilities regulator. A joint project of Capital Power and Enmax, the two-unit plant known as Genesee 4 and 5 is planned to come into service between 2018 and 2020, coinciding with the looming retirements in 2019 of several coal-fired power plants.
