Electric Reliability Project
Reliable electric service is important to everyone. That's why the City of Tallahassee's Your Own utilities work to ensure we have a system of substations and electric lines in place to meet your needs. As part of the City's Electric Reliability Project, designed to improve electric service to the growing northeast part of our community, we are planning two major projects with construction beginning in 2014.
Transmission Line 55 is in the planning phase. The City is currently working to address easement/use permit issues. During this process, citizen feedback is welcome and can be emailed to Brian.Horton@talgov.com. Once it has been determined, staff's recommendation on the proposed route of the new line will be posted here along with the date it will be presented to the City Commission.
New Transmission Line 55 (I-10 corridor)
Replacing poles on Line 17 (Miccosukee Road to Timberlane Road)
The second project, which you will see on the maps below as line 17, involves replacing the electric poles that run from the electric substation at Miccosukee Road and Riggins Road to the substation near Market Square off of Timberlane Road. These new poles are being placed in the existing corridor, replacing the old poles, in order to modernize and upgrade the voltage of the transmission line.
