Windrise Transmission Project

The proposed Windrise Transmission Project will connect the Windrise Wind Project to Alberta’s electricity system through a 138,000 volt transmission line approximately 21km in length.    

The Windrise Transmission Project will connect the proposed Windrise Wind Project substation to the Alberta Interconnected Electric System in the Municipal District of Willow Creek, Alberta.

The feedback we received, along with the results of our environmental surveys and ongoing design work, has allowed us to select a preferred route and alternate routes.

On November 29, the regulatory review process began with the filing of a Facility Application with the Alberta Utilities Commission (Proceeding number 25074). Our team remains committed to engaging with landowners and are available to answer questions as the project moves forward through this process.
