Project Development

Project development

AltaLink identifies potential locations for new transmission lines or substations through a combination of technical research, environmental studies and stakeholder consultation. 

When we start to plan transmission line routing, we research the project area to find routing with the lowest overall impact. Stakeholder input is crucial throughout this process.

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 of facility applications.
