We are proposing to replace transformers at the Namao substation so we can continue to reliably deliver electricity to Edmontonians. The existing units are nearing the end of their useful lives and need to be replaced.

What we're doing   

The Namao substation is situated at 97 St. and 127 Ave. in the Lauderdale neighborhood. If approved, the project will involve:

  • Replacing 2 transformers that are nearing the end of their useful lives with similar-capacity units
  • Removing 2 external voltage regulators from service, as their function is now included in the new transformers


What to expect during construction

Work space

All work spaces will be safe and secure. Construction will be conducted according to City of Edmonton bylaws, and health, safety and  environmental standards.

Construction noise

This work will create noise typical to construction, including company vehicles and crews. We will take measures to ensure we comply with the City of Edmonton's Community Standards Bylaw for Noise Control. If it is necessary to exceed acceptable noise levels, we will work with the City of Edmonton to obtain necessary permits.

Hours of operations

We anticipate our hours of work for this project to be Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.; however, occasional evening and weekend work may be required.

Power supply

We do not anticipate any planned power outages resulting from this work.

Road/sidewalk access

No public road or sidewalk closures are expected as part of this project.

Project area

The illustration shows the proposed work that will be happening at the existing Namao substation in your area. All work will occur within the existing substation boundary. No changes to the substation fence line are anticipated.


Participate in the process

We believe in listening to and engaging stakeholders. Community input and involvement is an important part of our decision-making and we want to hear what you think about our initiatives.
