879L Transmission Line Fire Risk Mitigation Rebuild

Portions of AltaLink’s existing 879L transmission line are located in a high fire risk area. To make the grid more resilient to fire, we are focused on ensuring that assets in high fire risk areas are up to current design standards. While we do not believe there is an immediate risk to public safety, we are proposing to proactively rebuild a segment of the 879L transmission line to mitigate fire risk, and ensure that a safe and reliable supply of power is available for years to come.
