Increased production of energy from wind farms in southern Alberta has led to a demand for additional transmission capacity. The Southern Alberta Transmission Reinforcement (SATR) project stems from a formal application put forward to the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) in 2008 by the Alberta Electric Systems Operator (AESO), and approved in 2009.

Altalink is completing the project is a number of stages, which consist of individual substations and transmission line segments.
