With more than 13,000 kilometres of transmission line and 300 substations, AltaLink is Alberta’s largest regulated electricity transmission provider. Millions of Albertans count on us for the energy that powers their lives. We take that responsibility seriously.
The transmission system is the backbone of the economy, connecting homes, farms, businesses and industries to diverse generation resources such as wind, solar, and natural gas.
Our province is fortunate to have diverse sources of generation to power the grid, and AltaLink has integrated all of these sources effectively for more than 20 years. We did this while consistently improving our reliability performance and keeping our rates flat for five years in a row.
As the generation mix continues to evolve, Albertans can count on us to deliver the energy they need, when they need it.
With a future driven by technology, a push to achieve net zero emissions, and the increasing electrification of society, the grid will play a larger role in our lives than ever before.
Through it all, we remain focused on ensuring that safe, reliable and affordable electricity is available to all Albertans. It’s what we’ve always done.
