At Dominion Energy, we are dedicated to finding the best solution for the long-term energy needs within the communities we serve. As we remain focused on reliability, we have identified two aging electric transmission lines, which have been in operation for more than 60 years, and have initiated a project to rebuild a portion of these lines. The lines to be rebuilt are known as the Denny Terrace – Rader 115 kV lines and are each six miles long. The entirety of the rebuild will be done exclusively on existing transmission rights-of-way.

The engineering design and environmental permitting began in the 1st quarter of 2021 and is ongoing. Construction is planned to begin at the beginning of 2022 and is expected to be complete by the end of 2022. Letters will be sent out to impacted property owners along the route as DESC gets closer to construction.

Dominion Energy South Carolina will be replacing the existing 115 kilovolt (kV) wooden poles along this six-mile corridor with self-supporting galvanized steel structures. The new line will be designed to meet all modern electric codes as well as provide additional reliability and resiliency to the greater East Columbia area. The rebuilt lines will be constructed by contractors of Dominion Energy. At this time, DESC expects there to be no interruptions in power to its customers.

The project will take place in Northern Columbia, between DESC’s Denny Terrace and Rader substations and all work will be done on existing rights-of-way. The line is located on the North side of I-20 and travels in an East to West direction. Along the way, the line crosses Monticello Rd., Fairfield Rd., Wilson Blvd., Farrow Rd., and Meadowlake Park.

While most of the line is away from heavily traveled areas, there may be traffic control set up at road crossings occasionally as Dominion Energy and its contractors ensure the work is completed safely and effectively.
