Dawson Creek/Chetwynd Area Transmission
The demand for electricity is growing
Natural gas exploration and development in the Dawson Creek and south Peace region of B.C. has increased the demand for clean, reliable electricity. The Dawson Creek/Chetwynd Area Transmission (DCAT) project will help to meet the demand by doubling the system capacity in the area.
Included in the project are a new substation, expansions to two existing substations, and two new transmission lines.
In mid-November 2013, construction began on the DCAT transmission line, with the start of right-of-way clearing and access road construction.
