Projects > ENMAX Substation No. 1 Replacement Project
ENMAX Power Corporation (ENMAX Power) is replacing the existing ENMAX Substation No. 1, located at 738 9 Avenue SW. Originally built in 1912 to power streetlights and the streetcar rail system in downtown Calgary, the new substation is required to ensure the reliability and integrity of ENMAX’s transmission system, and to ensure the reliable supply of electricity to the City of Calgary.
The new ENMAX Substation No. 1 will be built on a site directly west of the existing substation, on the northwest corner, at the 9 Avenue SW and 7 Street SW. In addition to constructing the new substation, ENMAX Power will need to excavate sections of 9 Avenue SW, 7 Street SW, and 8 Street SW to relocate, install and replace transmission lines, duct banks and manholes.
Once construction dates are determined, impacted stakeholders will receive advance notification and additional information. Communication efforts will continue through all phases of the project to ensure timely updates are provided to those impacted.
