EPCOR will be replacing surge arresters at the Rossdale Substation in mid-March 2024. This work will take approximately two weeks to complete. Surge arresters are protective devices that limit and divert high voltage on electrical equipment. This work will ensure safe conditions within the substation and protect substation electrical equipment from damage.
This replacement work will be done within the substation fence. Residents can expect to see activity typical to construction at the substation including a crane on site. No power outages are anticipated due to this work.
This project may be noisy at times however no significant noise is anticipated in the residential area of the Rossdale community. We will comply with the City of Edmonton’s Community Standards Bylaw for Noise Control.
