Bury The Line Rally Media Advisory

Today, RETA released a Media Advisory about the Bury the Line public rally at the Alberta Legislature Building on Saturday, March 19, 2:00 p.m.

RETA is encouraging anyone who is concerned about above ground high voltage power lines being built in communities across the province to attend the rally.

The Media Advisory includes information on the actual costs to bury high voltage power lines. Capital costs to bury lines are the same or similar to those of building them above ground. AltaLink, EPCOR, ATCO Electric, Alberta Energy and the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) have intentionally been grossly inflating the costs to bury power lines in an attempt to make this technology appear unattractive.
