Siemens Energy brings green energy to AlbertansThe future of energy lies with renewables like wind and solar. To ensure a future of reliable and affordable green energy for Albertans, ATCO is using innovative technologies.
Harnessing the wind for Alberta's clean energy needs
The people of Alberta look forward to a future powered by more renewable-based electricity. Provincial utility ATCO Electric has taken big steps toward reaching that goal, after building the Eastern Alberta Transmission Line (EATL) - a massive conduit that will serve as part of a system-wide backbone for decades to come.
EATL, the longest transmission line in Alberta, features energy flowing both from south to north and from north to south. While Albertans have always needed reliable, safe and cost-effective energy, increasingly they’re looking for additional sources of green energy. With EATL, ATCO is addressing the province’s growing energy demand by providing Albertans with clean wind power energy from the province’s windy south.
Alberta's abundant wind power can now be harnessed and distributed reliably and cost-effectively. Siemens state-of-the-art technology helps make EATL possible.
