    Previous plans

    In April 2014, we first informed stakeholders about our plans to cancel certain transmission system developments previously approved in 2011 as part of the Central East Transmission Development Amendment (CETD). As part of its application to the Alberta Utilities Commission for the proposed PENV transmission development, the AESO will also apply for approval to cancel certain unconstructed CETD components that are no longer needed.

    In July 2014, the AESO informed stakeholders of the need for transmission development referred to as the Vermilion to Red Deer, Edgerton to Provost Transmission Development (VREPTD). As part of its ongoing planning process, the AESO has decided not to proceed with that development. The Provost to Edgerton and Nilrem to Vermilion Transmission Development (PENV) is proposed to replace parts of the VREPTD. Further developments west of PENV may be required in the future, and if so we will notify you of our plans at that time.
