AltaLink is Alberta’s largest regulated electricity transmission company.
Our transmission system is the essential link that connects homes, farms, businesses and industries to the electricity generated across Alberta. Electricity generated from thermal energy, wind power and hydro is transported at high voltages over long distances through transmission lines to substations, which lower the voltage so electricity can be delivered safely to homes and businesses via distribution lines.
Our more than 800 employees are committed to maintaining top quality and reliable electrical transmission services for Albertans, and to providing innovative technical and financial solutions to enable Alberta’s growing electricity market.
