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.

We invite all stakeholders who are interested in learning more about the Project to attend an information session which will take place on September 16, 17, 18 and 19, 2019 any time between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. at the Ardenville Community Hall.
