    Hughes 2030S Substation

    ATCO Electric Ltd. (ATCO) has applied to the Alberta Electric System Operator for transmission system access to reliably supply growing demand for electricity in the city of Grande Prairie area.

    ATCO’s request can be met by the following solution:

    • Build the Hughes 2030S substation with one 144 kV transformer, three 144 kV circuit breakers, and associated equipment; and
    • Build two 144 kV transmission lines to connect the Hughes 2030S substation to the transmission system.
