AltaLink submitted a Facilities Application for this project to the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) for review in July 2012. The Okotoks to Janet Project and High River and Okotoks Transmission Project were included in the same joint application titled Foothills 138 kV Project. To view the application please visit www.auc.ab.ca. Thank you for participating in our consultation process – your input is important to us.
The Okotoks to Janet Project is part of an area transmission development called the Foothills Area Transmission Development (FATD). This development includes new transmission lines and upgrades to the electric system in Calgary and the communities south and east of the city. The majority of the transmission system in the area was built in 1985, since that time the population and industry has grown substantially. These projects will ensure power from new generation plants, including wind power from southern Alberta, is connected to Alberta's electric grid and maintain a reliable supply of electricity to support the growth and demand in this area.
The proposed project includes:
Althought we attempt to follow the anticipated project schedule, it is subject to change. We will continue to provide you with updated schedule information as the project progresses.
