Castle Rock Ridge to Chapel Rock Transmission Project

 

The Castle Rock Ridge to Chapel Rock Transmission Project is part of an area transmission development called the Southern Alberta Transmission Reinforcement (SATR).

This reinforcement includes new transmission lines and upgrades to the electric system in southern Alberta. These projects will connect new wind-generated power to Alberta's electric system and strengthen the transmission system in the area.


The proposed project includes:

  • building a new substation, to be called Chapel Rock Substation.
  • building a new 240 kV (240,000 volts) double circuit transmission line approximately 20 to 41 kilometres in length from the existing Castle Rock Ridge Substation to one of the proposed Chapel Rock Substation locations.
  • building approximately one to 13 kilometres of new 500 kV transmission line depending on the location of the Chapel Rock Substation.
  • building a new telecommunications tower.
  • expansion of the existing Castle Rock Ridge Substation.
