ENMAX Highway 8 and 101 Street Transmission Line 7.82L Relocation Project

ENMAX Highway 8 Transmission Line 7.82L Relocation Project

Application to relocate a portion of the 138-kilovolt transmission line 7.82L in southwest Calgary 

Overview

The Alberta Utilities Commission is currently considering an application from ENMAX Power Corporation to relocate a portion of transmission line 7.82L located near Highway 8 in Calgary. The AUC will be holding a hearing to review the application and submissions received to consider the electric transmission development application. 

ENMAX Power Corporation has applied to the AUC for approval to relocate a portion of the 138-kilovolt transmission line 7.82L. The existing line is located in the Calgary Transportation Utility Corridor and is in conflict with the construction and planned infrastructure of the West Calgary Ring Road. Due to conflicts with the West Calgary Ring Road construction and infrastructure, Alberta Transportation has directed ENMAX Power Corporation to relocate certain portions of the existing line. The relocation is anticipated to be completed by January 31, 2021.

The portion of the existing line to be relocated is in southwest Calgary and crosses Highway 8 (north to south) west of 69 Street S.W. and then runs west parallel to Highway 8.

Related Proceeding 24828 contains a separate application from ENMAX Power Corporation to relocate a portion of transmission line 7.82L that runs along 101 Street S.W. in Calgary, known as the 101 Street Transmission Line Relocation Project.
