• Western Alberta Transmission Line

Overview

The Demand

In the last 20 years, Alberta has welcomed more than one million new residents and our demand for electricity has doubled, yet the backbone of the transmission system remains largely the same.

Challenges

To have electricity throughout the province at a flick of a switch, an efficient and reliable transmission grid is needed.

The Solution

The transmission system between Edmonton and Calgary is being reinforced to avoid reliability issues for consumers in southern and central Alberta, to improve the efficiency of the transmission system and to avoid system congestion to allow the competitive power generation market to work.
