What is the East Ring Enhancement Project?


The City of Medicine Hat is actively preparing for growth and demand for electrical energy. To prepare for this growth, the city plans to enhance its current eastern transmission system.

This plan involves making existing structures stronger and moving transmission lines if needed. These actions will help the city be well-prepared for future growth by increasing the line capacity from 69 kilovolts (kV) to 138 kV.


Project Alternatives - Considering the Options

We have reached the next stage in the project where we are evaluating alternative scenarios for the transmission line. Each scenario presents different options for the poles, either changing the height or relocating them. Descriptions of each scenario are included in the Project Newsletter and described in each of the sections below.

Working with the community is essential for us to determine what scenarios should be submitted for regulatory approval.
