Underground transmission line
The project will require a connection to Ontario’s electricity grid, and we plan to investigate a transmission route underwater on the lakebed of Georgian Bay from the project site at 4th CDTC, to the Wasaga Beach area, and underground from there to the Hydro One Stayner Transformer Station (TS). It is anticipated that Hydro One will be upgrading their system from Stayner TS to the final destination of Essa TS. Transmission routing will be a significant component of an environmental assessment process.
To advance a potential transmission route, we recently purchased a shoreline property in Wasaga Beach. This parcel of land is the proposed location for lakebed cables to connect with underground transmission cables. Transmission infrastructure/lines constructed on the property are expected to be buried underground.
