Edmonton Power Facts
Follow the lines of our city's electrical history
In the late 1980's, some two dozen Edmonton Power employees were asked to consider being involved in the publication of a booklet which would document the history and development of Edmonton Power. As the project progressed, it became clear that it would take much more than a booklet to properly represent the history of a company as rich and diverse as Edmonton Power.
The Edmonton Power Historical Foundation was established as a non-profit society in November 1989, with the primary objective being:
"To encourage and foster a greater interest and awareness of the history of the generation, transmission, distribution and usage of electrical power in the City of Edmonton and the Province of Alberta."
The Foundation's current mission goes beyond the original ties to Edmonton Power, now focusing its energies on a variety of activities geared towards preserving the history of the industry in general and documenting the ways electrical power generation has helped shape the economy of the Province of Alberta.
