Round 2 of Manitoba Minnesota Transmission Project Now Underway

The Manitoba–Minnesota Transmission Project includes a proposed 500 kilovolt AC transmission line in southeastern Manitoba and associated station upgrades. The project is required to:

  • export power to the United States based on current sales agreements;
  • improve reliability and import capacity in emergency and drought situations;
  • increase access to markets in the United States.

Subject to regulatory approvals, the projected in-service date is mid-2020. The estimated cost of the project is $350 million.

We will:

  • seek public input in selecting an optimal route;
  • undertake an environmental assessment for the project.

We will be holding 10 public open houses in Round 2 for the public to share comments, feedback, and local knowledge as we progress to a preferred route. If you are unable to attend any of our open houses, complete a survey (open new window) and/or contact us to provide your feedback.
