The completed work saw a 3rd lower mainland 500 KV line go through Merritt on its way to the Lower Mainland from Revelstoke. The project had rigorous permitting process and is complete since last year including a new substation here in Merritt .

The local 200 million dollar Green energy project is delayed opening until next fall a full year past the expected time. Something a private operation trys  to avoid.

At this writing a small piece of the 138 KV line at central park is going underground. the poles it will be replacing were placed  next to a housing walled community and a golf course.
