Bloomington Reliability Project
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.
The Bloomington Rogers Street – 11th Street – Dunn Street Reliability Project will enhance our ability to provide safe and reliable energy to homes, businesses and other community facilities in the Bloomington area.
