Media Advisory - ENMAX to break ground on new Crossfield Energy Centre

    CALGARY, July 18 /CNW/ - Over the past few weeks there's been
considerable public debate about Alberta's energy situation. The province is
in need of additional infrastructure to meet growing demand for electricity,
and ENMAX Energy is one of the companies addressing that need.
    Media representatives are invited to the future site of the Crossfield
Energy Centre on July 23, 2008 where ENMAX President and CEO Gary Holden will
be joined by the MD of Rocky View Reeve Lois Habberfield, Deputy
Reeve Greg Boehlke and the Mayor of Crossfield, Phil McCracken in a special
sod-turning ceremony.
    The Crossfield Energy Centre will be a 120 MW natural gas-fired peaking
facility. It is designed to meet periods of peak electrical demand and is
expected to operate about 15 to 45 per cent of the time to help stabilize the
province's southern transmission grid.


    What:       Ground-breaking ceremony on the site of the future Crossfield
                Energy Centre with photo and interview opportunity.
