ACT Second Electricity Supply

ACT Second Electricity Supply

TransGrid's new 330/132kV Stockdill Substation will provide the ACT with a second supply point, and one that is independent of Canberra 330/132kV Substation. The second supply point is a requirement  by the ACT Government under the provision to provide two or more geographically separate connection points operated at 132 kV and above to supply electricity to the ACT 132 kV network.

The project includes a 330/132kV substation and 6km’s of 330kV transmission line, incorporating 20 new structures, as well as a new 132kV emergency bypass and the decommissioning of two 330kV transformers and associated switchgear at the Canberra 330kV Substation.

The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and the Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) have been approved by ACT Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development (EPSD) to allow the commencement of the works.
