Red Deer Area Transmission Development

AltaLink is proposing to upgrade its transmission system in the Red Deer, Wetaskiwin and Didsbury areas to make sure that residents and businesses continue to have a reliable supply of electricity for years to come.

This project includes:

  • upgrading six substations
  • rebuilding approximately 75 kilometres of existing transmission lines
  • building three new substations
  • building approximately 50 kilometres of new transmission lines
  • removing approximately 100 kilometres of existing transmission lines

The proposed Red Deer Area Transmission Development is divided into five stages.
