Toronto Hydro is Constructing Canada’s Second Underground Transformer Station

To alleviate strain on the grid and to make room for new construction, Toronto Hydro is building its first transformer station since the 1950s! The station will add enough electrical capacity to power the equivalent of 70 skyscrapers and will be tucked beneath one of the city’s busiest tourist locations next to the CN Tower, Ripley’s Aquarium and the Rogers Centre.
