Transmission

Electricity enters our system from the provincial grid through the transmission substations that we own, operate and maintain at various points around Red Deer.

We are a Transmission Facility Owner operating as part of the Alberta Interconnected Electric System and this area is regulated by the Alberta Utilities Commission. The Alberta Electric System Operator compensates us for using our transmission facilities.
