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.
We finished construction of the new 35 kilometre transmission line, earlier this summer. Upgrades at the Merritt Substation are also mostly complete. Commissioning and testing activities are underway at the substation, putting us on track to meet an in-service date of late October 2015.
