Scenic Loop Substation and Transmission Line Project

 

The Scenic Loop Substation and Transmission Line Project involves the proposed construction of a new substation, a new transmission line, and associated distribution lines. This substation will improve reliability and provide additional electrical capacity to homes and businesses in the area.

Throughout the course of the PUC process CPS Energy will be posting updates to major activities and information regarding this project on this webpage.
