Econ Winter Park East 230 kV Transmission Line

Econ – Winter Park East 230kV Transmission Line Rebuild Project

Project Overview

At Duke Energy, our goal is to provide reliable power. To continue meeting energy needs now and into the future, we will be completing an important electric reliability enhancement project in Orange and Seminole counties.

Project Details

Rebuild the existing 3-mile, 230-kilovolt (kV) overhead transmission line from the Econlockhatchee (Econ) Substation to the Winter Park East Substation.

To ensure continuous service to our customers while the line is rebuilt, a temporary line will be constructed adjacent to the existing line within the transmission line easement. This temporary line will be in place for approximately one year and will be removed at the end of the project.

Many of the existing metal lattice towers will be replaced by steel monopoles (single poles) with an average height of 125 feet.

We expect that work on the rebuild project will occur within the existing easement. At this time, we do not plan to acquire new easements.
