Responsible Electricity Transmission for Albertans
Town Hall Meeting – June 17th, Coast Edmonton East Hotel
We’re having an extremely important meeting that you need to attend, and, in fact, we would like to ask each of you to invite at least two other families who are not currently members of RETA so we can show our elected representatives that we are determined to be listened to – we will not let anyone run above ground by our schools and houses! Please go to our Attendance Confirmation Form so that we can ensure we have enough space and parking for everyone. (Please note: If you cannot make the meeting please still fill out the form so we can get an accurate picture of how many people are attending. Thank you.)
The address of the hotel is: 2100 Premier Way, Sherwood Park, Alberta T8H 2G4
At the meeting, we will update everyone and explain next steps. You will have a chance to ask questions, not only of RETA but also the AESO, AltaLink, EPCOR and some of your elected representatives. Plus we’ve also invited some very special guests that I think you will find very informative and helpful.
We have invited representatives from Europacable (The European Confederation of National Associations of Manufacturers of Insulated Wire and Cable) an industry association whose members have done much of the extremely high voltage underground installation around the world.
We are lucky enough to have Thomas Neesen, Secretary General of Europacable, Ernesto Zaccone, Europacable High Voltage Transmission Cable Expert and Volker Wendt, Consultant to Europacable join us at the meeting. They will be delivering a presentation about the feasibility of underground power lines as well as answering your questions.
We have also arranged for Europacable to meet with a number of MLA’s and Ministers while they are here as well as with the AESO and AltaLink and EPCOR.
Thank you in advance for your attendance and your continued support. I can’t stress enough how important it is that everyone attends (children are welcome – they have the most to lose). Now is not the time to relax and hope that everyone else “does their bit”. Now is the time to make sure we all stand together. Please remember to confirm your attendance by clicking here .
