Power Line Projects
We power approximately 2.6 million homes and businesses in Virginia and North Carolina. Electricity is carried from our generating stations across 6,700 miles of transmission lines that serve our customers and are part of the Eastern Interconnection transmission grid.
We continue to invest in high-voltage transmission assets to strengthen grid reliability to our electric customers. Some projects focus on replacing aging infrastructure including rebuilding the 500kV loop that serves as the backbone of our service area, and other focus on new transmission facilities to support growth.
