TransAlta Riplinger Wind Project Connection

To connect its Riplinger Wind Project to the grid, TransAlta is constructing a new 240 kilovolt (kV) transmission line, located approximately eight kilometres east of the Town of Pincher Creek.

TransAlta is considering three connection points along AltaLink’s existing 955/956L transmission line. To accommodate this connection, AltaLink is proposing the following modifications to its transmission line at each of the three potential connection points. If approved, only one of these modifications will be constructed, based on the final connection point determined by TransAlta.
