Merritt Area Transmission Project
Meeting Merritt's electricity needs for years to come
Increased growth in the Merritt area is leading to increased demand for clean and reliable electricity.
To support this economic development, including new hotels, residential subdivisions, and a resort south of the city in the Coquihalla corridor, a new transmission line and substation upgrades are required.
On October 30, 2015, the transmission line from Merritt Substation to Highland Substation was energized. Over the following week our crews worked to switch our customers over from the old Merritt Substation to the new Merritt Substation. The project is now in-service.
