Forty Mile Wind Power Connection Project – Murray Lake Switching Station

To connect Renewable Energy Systems Canada Inc.’s (RES) approved Forty Mile Wind Power Plant to the grid, AltaLink is proposing upgrades to its transmission system in the area, including the construction of a new switching station, modifications to an existing structure, addition of one structure, and installation of approximately one kilometre of fibre optic cable.

Although AltaLink’s project is required to facilitate the connection of the Forty Mile Wind Power Plant, it is a separate project. In addition to the approved Forty Mile Wind Power Plant, there is a proposed RES 240 kilovolt (kV) transmission line project associated with it. RES will be consulting separately on their projects.
