Eastside Loop Expansion - 115 kV Transmission Line
El Paso Electric Company (EPE) has filed applications with the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) to amend its Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN) in order to construct two new 115 kV electric transmission lines in eastern El Paso County, Texas. The construction is planned in two phases and have been assigned Docket Numbers 51476 and 51480. These lines will connect to three new substations, Pine, Seabeck, and San Felipe Substations. The applications were filed on November 16, 2020.
The proposed transmission lines are required to maintain the reliability of the transmission system in the area and will serve projected and future load growth. The proposed construction for both Phase I and Phase II includes new 115 kV electric transmission lines, located along a number of possible routes.
The applications and public notices with proposed routing maps are provided in the weblinks below. The line segments shown on the maps are potential route segment alternatives; not all of the segment alternatives will be constructed. The PUCT will determine the final routes in the CCN application proceedings.
