Overview:

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 an aging electric transmission line, which has been in operation for over five decades, and have initiated a project to rebuild the line. This aging line which is known as the North-Perry-Springfield 46kV line is 22.5 miles in length and will be rebuilt exclusively on existing rights-of-way.

Project Description:

Dominion Energy South Carolina will be replacing the existing 46 kilovolt (kV) wooden poles along this 22.5 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 areas along the route. The rebuilt lines will be constructed by Dominion Energy crews. Construction started in the summer of 2021 and will continue throughout 2022 as crews safely complete the work.

Timeframe:

The Engineering Design and Environmental Permitting began in the third quarter of 2020 and will continue throughout the year. Line construction is expected to start in the summer of 2022 and is expected to be complete by the end of 2022.

Location:

The project begins in North, SC and travels west. Along the way, the line crosses Highway 321, Salley Road, Highway 3 and ends in the town of Perry. From there, the line turns South, crosses through the towns of Salley, and ends in Springfield.

Traffic:

While most of the line is away from heavily traversed 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.

Questions:

Please contact Dominion Energy SC at 866-865-1466 or SCPowerLine@DominionEnergy.com with questions. Additionally, letters will be sent out to impacted property owners along the route as DESC gets closer to construction.
