To connect its project to the grid, TransAlta is constructing a new 138 kilovolt (kV) transmission line, located approximately 20 kilometres south of the Town of Taber. To accommodate the connection, AltaLink’s proposed project includes:

  • modifying the existing 172EL transmission line at one of two potential locations
  • installing a new underground fibre optic cable between one of two potential connection points and an existing substation in the area (called Suncor Hillridge), located in NW-36-8-18-W4M
  • installing a new telecommunications tower at TransAlta’s Tempest Substation, located in SE-19-7-17-W4M
