Purpose

Dominion Energy South Carolina (DESC) will rebuild an existing electric transmission line. The line is 65 miles in length and runs from the Savannah River up to Lexington, SC. Specifically, the project traverses through Stevens Creek, Edgefield, Trenton, Johnston, Ward, Batesburg-Leesville, Gilbert, and Lexington.

We will replace the existing 115 kilovolt (kV) wooden poles with self-supporting galvanized steel structures. The new line will be designed to meet all modern electric codes and will provide a stronger electrical system across DESC service territory as well as provide additional reliability and resiliency to the areas along the route. The rebuild lines will be constructed by contractors of Dominion Energy.
