AltaLink

AltaLink is Alberta’s largest regulated electricity transmission company, providing innovative technical and financial solutions for the electricity market.

AltaLink’s transmission system is the essential link that connects homes, farms, businesses and industries to the electricity generated across Alberta. Electricity generated from thermal energy, wind power and hydro is transported at high voltages over long distances through transmission lines to substations, which lower the voltage so electricity can be delivered safely to homes and businesses via distribution lines.
