Windrise Transmission Project

The proposed Windrise Transmission Project will connect the Windrise Wind Project to Alberta’s electricity system through a transmission line approximately 20-22km 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.

TransAlta will be working with local landowners, Indigenous Communities and stakeholders over the upcoming months to determine a preferred route for the Project.
