    Intertie restoration

    Interties are transmission interconnections between neighbouring electric systems that allow power to be imported and exported. Alberta currently has three operating interties between British Columbia, Montana and Saskatchewan.

    The current total transfer capability is:

    • 153 MW for both export and import with Saskatchewan
    • 315 MW export and 310 MW import with Montana
    • 1000 MW export and 800 MW import with British Columbia

    The AESO is working on restoring the intertie between Alberta and B.C. and Montana to full path capability.
