ST. LOUIS, P.E.I. —

Egmont MP Bobby Morrissey announced funding to build a new transmission line from Sherbrooke to Skinners Pond.

The new 106-kilometre transmission line and its related equipment will support future wind energy generation projects in western P.E.I.

Once completed, the transmission line will increase the province's capacity to manage the anticipated 40 megawatts from the future Skinner's Pond Windfarm planned for 2025 and provide connectivity to the Sherbrooke substation to the northeast of Summerside.

The federal government is investing $21.25 million and the province is providing $22.75 million in this project through the Green Infrastructure Stream (GIS) of the Investing in Canada infrastructure program.

This project is one in a series of important project announcements that will be made across the province over the coming weeks.
