Project Overview

Our goal at Duke Energy is to provide dependable power to the communities we serve. To help keep that commitment, we are building new transmission lines in Bloomington, Ind. to help meet the growing demand for electricity and to adequately serve the city. The new power lines will feed three substations in a 3.3-mile transmission corridor and provide a continuous, enhanced reliable flow of energy for you and your community. Our goal is to minimize impacts to nearby homes, businesses, the environment and cultural resources during construction.
