The service provider is required to design and build as per ENMAX Power Corporation's standards, specifications, and guidelines. ENMAX Power has inspection and quality control processes in place to ensure the installation of a safe and reliable electrical system.
What happens if there is a cable or equipment failure in the future?
ENMAX Power Corporation will continue to respond to equipment failures and outages to restore service in a timely manner.
Why is ENMAX Power providing developers with a choice of design and build companies?
ENMAX Power has been transitioning towards an “Asset Management Operating Model” for distribution projects. Our role as asset owner will focus on owning, operating and managing the growth of our infrastructure, with design and construction activities assigned to external service providers.
What types of projects are in the “Developer Choice” Model?
All Developer driven non-residential distribution projects excluding projects initiated by The City of Calgary Transportation Infrastructure and Roads.
How is ENMAX Power involved in Developer Choice projects?

The Developer Choice Model will provide developers increased flexibility to meet their business needs. Project timelines (design, material procurement and construction) will be arranged between the developer and the service provider.
Who will coordinate the work with other shallow utilities (i.e. telephone, cable, gas)?
If the developer chooses to install telephone/cable/gas infrastructure, any coordination will be the responsibility of the service provider.
