After more than five decades of operation, the wooden pole and H-frame structures and associated components along the nearly 26-mile line running from our Buggs Island Substation in Mecklenburg County to our Plywood Substation in Halifax County need to be replaced in order to maintain reliability for our customers.

Updates

  • January 2021 - Foundation installation on phase 1 from Kinderton-Omega is nearly complete. Crews continue to install structures and pull in conductor wire.

  • April 2021 – Crews have nearly completed phase 1 work from Kinderton-Omega. Work is beginning on phases 2 and 3.

Overview & Project Description

Our suggested approach is to rebuild this line in a manner that:

  • Upgrades the line the current 115 kV standards
  • Maximizes use of the existing right of way corridor
  • Maintains reliable service to over 2,000 Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative customers served by a substation connected to the line
