New facilities must be approved by the utility regulator, the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC). This proceeding involved permitting a new 50 km high voltage transmission line west of Edmonton. It involved a written process, followed by an oral hearing. Issues included environmental matters, electro-magnetic fields (EMF), siting considerations, and property valuations.
