Proposed Transmission Line and Clyde River Substation Project

Maritime Electric is proposing to construct a 138 kV transmission line from Maple Plains to a new substation in Clyde River to accommodate electrical load growth and improve the reliability for our customers in the area.

The Company held a public information session on February 25 from 4 to 7 pm in Kelly's Cross to discuss the proposed project. Approximately 100 people attended to discuss the proposed project with Maritime Electric representatives.

Maritime Electric proposed two routes for transmission line construction, the alternate (now referred to as the northern route) and the preferred (now referred to as the southern route).

Both the northern and southern routes are viable options, however, based on the environmental conditions of both routes, and customer and stakeholder feedback received during and after the public meeting, Maritime Electric is prepared to construct the transmission line along the northern route.
