The Alberta Electric System Operator will launch in July a call for transmission developers to build a 248-280 mile, 500 kV transmission project in Alberta. Brookfield Renewable Power, Enbridge, Enmax and LS Power have all participated in the comment part of the initiative, Elizabeth Moore, director of the competitive procurement department, told attendees at Euromoney Seminars’ 3rd Annual Canadian Power Finance Conference in Toronto.
