Ensuring a safe and reliable supply of power for homes and businesses in Ontario is Hydro One's top priority. An important step to sustaining this commitment involves maintaining and renewing our infrastructure.
Hydro One has identified sections of its 115 kilovolt (kV) transmission line between Burlington and Hamilton which require refurbishment to maintain a continued delivery of safe, reliable electricity and minimize the risk of future power interruptions.
As part of the planning process, Hydro One is undertaking a Class Environmental Assessment (see
approvals section) that will include plenty of opportunities for public involvement.
Refurbishing this transmission line will strengthen and modernize our infrastructure and the electricity grid that powers your city every day.
This project involves refurbishing the existing 115 kV transmission line between Burlington Transformer Station, in the City of Burlington, and Enbridge Westover Customer Transformer Station, in the City of Hamilton. View

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU
Public consultation is an integral component of the Class Environmental Assessment process. Hydro One provides early notification of proposed undertakings to the government agencies, municipal officials, First Nations communities, potentially affected property owners, and other local stakeholders, and we maintain a project contact list to keep interested parties informed and engaged throughout the study process.
Community INFORMATION CENTRES
Hydro One will hold
Community Information Centres in early fall 2017 to share information about the proposed project and to gather feedback from community members.
