The substation, along with new transmission infrastructure is needed to accommodate load growth and to maintain reliable electric service in the area.

Rapid growth in electrical demand, particularly in the commercial/high-tech sector in eastern Loudoun County has resulted in the need to build a new transmission line and sub station. This project will improve electric reliability for all customers in the region.

At Dominion Energy, we are committed to reviewing and analyzing our energy infrastructure and doing this work safely to provide reliable electric service.

Three primary forces drive the need for new electric transmission infrastructure:

  • Economic development, such as population growth or business expansion
  • Aging assets, such as decades old structures that need to be replaced
  • Complying with mandatory standards to ensure safety and reliability

These drivers often overlap, and at Dominion Energy, we believe solutions should always account for future energy needs while continuing to balance cost and impacts.

Project Goals

  • Provide long-term reliability and durability without excessive maintenance
  • Deliver operational system flexibility to meet future needs
  • Comply with mandatory standards to ensure safety and reliability

For this project, we will build new electrical equipment in the Route 28 corridor in Loudoun County. This equipment will support the construction of a data center. In addition, we will build transmission lines to bring electricity to both the substation and data center.

Proposed routes for this double circuit transmission line are estimated to be 1.5 miles to 2.5 miles long and if approved, will connect transmission lines at the BECO Substation to the new DTC Substation east of Route 28.

The project will include the installation of new galvanized steel structures.
