The Castle Rock Ridge Wind Farm Connection 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 project includes:
- a new transmission line approximately nine kilometres in length
- a new substation located on the Castle Rock Ridge wind farm site
- upgrades to the existing Goose Lake Substation
