Hydro One Networks Inc. and Hydro Ottawa Ltd. have applied to the Ontario Energy Board to rebuild and extend an existing transmission line and to build a municipal transformer station.
Hydro One Networks Inc. and Hydro Ottawa Ltd. are asking the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) for permission to:
- rebuild a 10.9 km section of the existing 115 kV single circuit line as a double circuit 230 kV line from a point at West Hunt Club Road to Cambrian Road JCT
- build a new 1.3 km section of double circuit 230 kV transmission line from the Cambrian Road JCT to a new proposed Municipal Transformer Station (South Nepean MTS)
- construct the new station facilities (South Nepean MTS)
The line connection and station work together are referred to as the Power South Nepean Project. These facilities are required to increase supply capacity to accommodate Hydro Ottawa’s customer load growth in the South Nepean area of Ottawa. Hydro One Networks Inc. and Hydro Ottawa Ltd. are also asking the OEB to approve the form of agreement they offer to landowners to use their land for routing or construction of the proposed line and station.
