Folkstone-Jacksonville Reliabiity Project

Folkstone-Jacksonville Reliability Project

Meeting the growing energy needs of Onslow County

Project Overview

Duke Energy is rebuilding approximately 14 miles of transmission line within the existing utility easement of the Folkstone-Jacksonville City 115-kV transmission line in Onslow County, North Carolina. The new line will improve reliability, resiliency and capacity by replacing wood structures with structures made of steel and upgrading to stronger transmission lines.

The project will take place in two phases. Phase 1 will take place along approximately seven miles of existing right-of-way north of Highway 258 in Jacksonville and run south to High Hill Road north of Dixon, North Carolina. Phase 2 will take place over the remaining seven miles which are located in the South Verona area along an existing Duke Energy right-of-way.
