We're adding to and making the power grid stronger for the Regina City Central Business District. This includes:
- Checking our underground systems
- Installing and maintaining duct banks
- Replacing aging overhead lines
- Installing and replacing equipment and underground cables
- Retiring old facilities
- Underground studies for engineering design work
Why we’re doing it
This work will help make sure that customers in Regina’s Central Business District have the power they need. By making these upgrades, it’ll help us find and fix power outages faster in the future. Meaning, it’ll reduce outage times.
Our progress so far
The program started in Regina in 2012, since then we’ve invested $45 million. To date, we’ve worked on:
- duct banks
- equipment switch upgrades
- technology upgrades
This year's work will run from April 2020 to March 2021.
Minimizing the impact to you
Some of this work will cause brief disruptions like:
- road restrictions
- heavy construction traffic
- planned power outages
Our crews will do their best to inform you about the impacts of the work ahead of time. We understand that disruptions can be annoying. That's why we'll do our best to schedule (when possible) certain types of work for:
Respecting the local environment
Our crews will use safe handling methods when disposing hazardous materials. But we expect no impact to the local environment.
Benefits to your community
Doing this work will allow us to continue to provide reliable power to our customers in Regina.
The estimated cost of this program in 2020-21 is $9 million.
