AltaLink Invests in Ensuring Peace of Mind for Albertans

CALGARY, ALBERTA–(March 7, 2008) –

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

With more than $215 million invested during the last 12 months, AltaLink, Alberta’s largest electric transmission company, has injected more than half a billion dollars in the last three years into the transmission system that supplies 85 per cent of Alberta’s population.

“Ensuring peace of mind for Albertans when they reach for the switch is what drives our commitment to provide an energy-efficient grid with open access to all sources of generation. AltaLink’s investment in the transmission system is about much more than new power lines and substations to keep the lights on,” said Scott Thon, AltaLink’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
