Brooksville West – Mondon Hill – Bushnell East

Brooksville West – Mondon Hill – Bushnell East Transmission and Substation Project

Project Overview

To help meet the anticipated growth in Hernando and Sumter counties in Florida, Duke Energy is constructing a new transmission circuit, extending existing transmission lines and upgrading other existing transmission lines. We also plan to construct a new Mondon Hill Substation. 


Project Details

Mondon Hill Substation

Build a new 230/115-kilovolt (kV) Mondon Hill Substation at Mondon Hill Road and Old Jasmine Drive in South Brooksville, Fla.

Transmission Line Projects

Bushnell East to Mondon Hill

Add a new 230-kV circuit by:

  • Upgrading the existing 69-kV double-circuit transmission lines and adding a new 230-kV line on collocated triple-circuit structures for approximately 2 miles within the utility existing easement area coming out of the Bushnell East Substation heading west. 
  • Upgrading the existing 69-kV single-circuit transmission line and adding a 230-kV line on collocated double-circuit structures for approximately 17.5 miles within the existing easement area.

Brooksville to Mondon Hill

Add a new 230-kV circuit by:

  • Upgrading the existing transmission lines with a 230-kV/115-kV/69-kV triple-circuit pole line and 115-kV/115-kV/69-kV/69-kV quad-circuit pole for 1.4 miles within the existing easement area.

Brooksville West to Brooksville

  • Reconfigure the existing Brooksville West to Brooksville 115-kV double-circuit transmission line to bypass the Brooksville Substation and end at Mondon Hill Substation.
  • Upgrade one of the existing 115-kV transmission lines to a 230-kV line from the Brooksville West line to the Brooksville Substation.

What to Expect

Once a project is announced, there are several key steps that take place during the design and preconstruction phases of a transmission line project. During early stages of field investigation, residents may see Duke Energy staff and contractor field crews in the area evaluating existing conditions. This field data is crucial in assisting our engineering teams and other personnel with the design and construction planning for the project. After the field investigation is complete, our engineering team will develop the design for the project. 

If a new easement or an update to the current easement is required, a company representative will contact the property owner to discuss the easement process. Additionally, we will be assessing the need to clear obstructions and vegetation within the current easement area to prepare for construction. Property owners will be notified in advance should either of these issues need to be addressed. 

Construction activities are anticipated to begin November 2023.

Benefits to the Community

  • Enhance the ability of Duke Energy to help provide safe and reliable energy to homes, community facilities and businesses in the area while also benefiting neighboring utilities.

  • Provide flexibility and additional capacity to continue delivering reliable electricity to help meet the region’s growing energy needs.

  • Maintain a robust system for supplying and delivering energy, which is integral to the continued economic prosperity of the region.
