Kenly 115kV Project

Kenly Project

Working hard to improve power reliability for our customers.

Duke Energy is building approximately 6 miles of new transmission line within the existing utility right of way from the Lee Plant-Selma 115-kV line to our new Kenly 115-kV substation site. This new line and substation will improve reliability and resiliency and better enable the integration of cleaner energy options and innovative technologies.
