To continue to meet the growing demand for safe and reliable energy across Beaufort County, we will connect the Burnt Church Road substation to a Santee Cooper operated facility on Bluffton Parkway. Once completed, this system enhancement will serve to reduce the duration of power outages in the area caused by severe weather or other events.

The project will require the construction of a new high-voltage transmission line between these two facilities. This new section of line will be known as the Okatie-Bluffton 115kV Tie, and will improve service for customers in the region, increasing the resiliency and reliability of the electric grid.

Construction of the new line is anticipated to begin in the second half of 2021 and be completed by the end of the year.

Dominion Energy conducted its first public workshop on March 21, 2019 to begin the process of informing the community about the upcoming project and to solicit input on information and factors to consider in evaluating and selecting a final route. We have entered Phase II of our Transmission Line Siting Process, and our second open house-style workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, July 24 from 2:30 - 6:30 pm at the Bluffton Branch Library, 120 Palmetto Way (see "Invitation" in "Related Links"). Residents and property owners are invited to drop in anytime and learn more about the project, view maps with alternative routes, offer feedback, and ask questions.
