Responsible Electricity Transmission for Albertans
Strathcona Continues Power Line Fight
Strathcona County has added $150,000 to its budget to intervene at the upcoming Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) hearings on the Heartland power line. The budget addition is to cover the costs of an anticipated longer AUC hearing because of the high number of registered interveners. The County continues to press for the line to be buried where it’s populated, and is based on a Motion Council passed unanimously March 3, 2009. See Sherwood Park News article and Strathcona County news release.
A petition to bury the line can be signed until March 4, 2011 at Millennium Place, County Hall, Strathcona County Library, Ardrossan Recreation Complex, Glen Allan Recreation Complex and the Heartland Hall Contact Office.
RETA encourages its members and all visitors to our website to sign this petition as it will be an indication to the Alberta Government, AltaLink, EPCOR and the AUC how strongly opposed we are to the Heartland line being built above ground.
