BC Hydro president and CEO Chris O'Riley announces plan to twin a transmission line that runs between Prince George and Terrace in order to meet the growing energy needs of the region. The project, which is currently in the planning and design phase, will involve building a second transmission line alongside the existing one, which was built in the 1970s.
This will increase the capacity of the transmission line and ensure a more reliable supply of electricity to the area. The twinning of the transmission line is expected to cost around $200 million and will take several years to complete. The project will also include upgrading and rebuilding substations along the route, as well as installing new transmission towers. The increased capacity will allow for more renewable energy to be transported to the area, helping to reduce the region's dependence on fossil fuels. BC Hydro is working closely with local communities and stakeholders to ensure that the project has minimal impact on the environment and local residents.
