Wataynikaneyap Power Transmission Project

The Wataynikaneyap Power Transmission Project involves a new 1,800km, 230-kV line that will run from Dinorwic, ON, to the existing Pickle Lake substation. The $1.6bn project is part of an overall Long Term Energy Plan in Ontario to reduce local diesel generation in remote communities as well as reduce electricity costs for these regions. The project is expected to be completed by 2023.
