Okanagan Transmission Reinforcement Project (OTR)

About this project

Our largest electricity project was completed in 2011. We increased the reliability of our South Okanagan electrical system by upgrading overhead lines from 161kV to 230kV, between South Vaseux Lake to Oliver and north to Penticton. We also built a new substation in Oliver and upgraded existing substations in Penticton, Vaseux Lake, Oliver and Kelowna. We are pleased to say this project helped support local economic spending, created construction-related jobs and increased the electric reliability for electricity customers.
