This work is related to SaskPower’s $37 million project to rebuild 74 kilometres of power line that connects the Tisdale Switching Station with the Prairie River Substation. The power line has reached the end of its useful life. SaskPower said rebuilding it will ensure reliable power for customers in the area for years to come.
SaskPower’s current plan is to complete this project in sections: Section 1 includes approximately 24 kilometres, section 2 includes approximately 35 kilometres and section 3 includes 15 kilometres.
