Our experience with electric power

Electricity transmission and distribution services

EPCOR's electricity distribution and transmission business owns and operates high voltage substations and transmission lines and cables situated within and around Edmonton, Alberta.  Additionally, we provide electricity distribution services to over 17,000 customers in Simcoe County and Blue Mountains, Ontario through utility acquisitions in the region.

In Alberta, we provide transmission services to the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) and distribute approximately 13% of Alberta's provincial electricity consumption to over 360,000 residential and 37,500 commercial and industrial end users.

We own and operate approximately 257 circuit kilometers of 72 kV, 138 kV, 240 kV and 500 kV lines and cables, routing power through 30 transmission substations.  

We can help you develop electricity transmission lines and related infrastructure, such as aerial transmission lines, substations, and underground transmission cables. Every project has different needs, reach out to see how we can help with yours.


Electricity infrastructure solutions through acquisition

Existing electrical infrastructure systems can be costly to maintain and properly upgrade to keep up with capacity and operational requirements. EPCOR can work with you to explore options for divesting of your existing electricity infrastructure.

Our electrical operations include systems and infrastructure that we acquired as part of our expansion and growth. If you are a utility provider or electricity transmission and distribution owner operator, get in touc to discover how EPCOR can acquire or purchase existing utility infrastructure. View our featured electricity asset acquisition.

 Additionally, we provide billing and customer care services to approximately 640,000 energy and natural gas customer sites and 282,000 water customer sites.



​Featured electricity infrastructure projects

Collingwood PowerStream

Through a competitive process, we acquired Collingwood PowerStream, an electricity distribution and services company with operations in three major communities in Simcoe County, Ontario.

The utility distributes electricity to over 17,000 service connections within the area of Collingwood, Stayner and Creemore (Clearview Township) plus the Town of The Blue Mountains (Grey County).

This was an asset acquisition.


Heartland Transmission

Together, EPCOR and AltaLink worked to develop a regulated project for a double circuit 500 kV aerial transmission line to reinforce the existing 500 kV transmission system in the Edmonton area and extend it to the Industrial Heartland area near Fort Saskatchewan.

The 66km route was considered a Critical Infrastructure Transmission Project (CTI) for the Province of Alberta.

This unique endeavour was developed as a regulated project.
