Peace Region Electricity Supply
Electricity demand in the South Peace region is increasing as a result of natural gas exploration and development in the area. The Peace Region Electricity Supply (PRES) Project will help to ensure that we can reliably provide electricity to our industrial customers who want to power their facilities with clean energy. The PRES Project will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by encouraging industries and businesses to use clean electricity rather than fossil fuels to power their equipment and operations.
We're currently in the planning stages of this project and will continue to monitor electricity demand in the area to confirm project need and timing. We currently expect to start construction in 2018 and be finished in the 2020-2022 timeframe.
