Southwestern Electric Power Company (SWEPCO) is planning to make a variety of improvements in the Summer Grove area of Shreveport. The project is part of a greater initiative to bolster the electric system in the Shreveport - Bossier City area.
Major components of the project include:
By building this transmission line, the area will be better served for continued reliable electric service and stronger support for economic growth in Shreveport - Bossier City. The company expects to invest an estimated $25 million on this project.
Construction on this project has been ongoing since last year. Delays in the project are due to inclement weather. However, crews begin construction on the new 69-kilovolt (kV) transmission line in July and expect to be complete by the end of the year.
The Louisiana Public Service Commission (LPSC) approved SWEPCO's Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CCN) application on January 31, 2018. Per this approval by the LPSC, SWEPCO plans to move forward with the next steps of the project. Preliminary field activities such as surveying will begin Spring 2018. Right-of-way agents will be contacting affected landowners as those activities get underway.
