The Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) has approved five AltaLink projects that fall under the Foothills Area Transmission Development and the Southern Alberta Transmission Reinforcement.

AltaLink, a Calgary-based transmission company, says the projects involve building new transmission lines, rebuilding and modifying existing transmission lines, and building two new substations. The projects will help bring new power generated in southern Alberta to Calgary and the communities south and east of the city, the company adds.

The company reports the five projects, which the AUC conditionally approved, include the North Foothills transmission project, the Foothills 138 kV project, the Langdon to Janet project, the South Foothills transmission project and the Windy Flats 138 kV line re-configuration.

According to AltaLink, construction is anticipated to begin in early 2014, and all five projects are expected to be complete in the spring or summer of 2015.
