Our public consultation program began in November 2016 with our project team reaching out to landowners, occupants, and residents who are directly adjacent to the proposed substation site, as well as other stakeholders.
Consultation is ongoing. If you have questions, concerns or feedback, please contact us using the information at the top of this page.
Once we have received input from the public, EPCOR will submit a facility application to the AUC for approval to construct the new substation. This project requires two regulatory approvals from the AUC: approval of the Alberta Electric System Operator's (AESO) Needs Identification Document (NID), and approval of EPCOR's facility application.
