We’re here for you

Please reach out with any concerns or feedback about how we’re doing at 1-877-267-1453 or stakeholderrelations@altalink.ca.

Annual structure payments

Annual Structure Payments (ASPs) are ongoing, annual payments landowners receive per structure on their property.

How do you determine my ASP?

Factors we take into consideration when determining ASPs include:

Loss of use of the area enclosed by the structure once operational.

Inconvenience and additional cost associated with weed control.

Additional time required to operate equipment around transmission line structure(s).

Additional seed required.

Overlap of pesticide/herbicide and fertilizer used when farming around the structure(s).

Effects on cultivation.

Intangible adverse effects.

If you have concerns about a project, you can participate prior to project approval by following the process outlined in the AUC brochure: Participating in the AUC’s Independent Review Process to review facility applications. For more information about the review process for facility applications, you can visit the  AUC website.

We look forward to meeting with stakeholders and learning more about how we can find the best locations for our facilities, working together.
