Morrisville has seen steady growth and an increased demand for electricity over the past several years. Duke Energy is committed to providing customers with safe, reliable and increasingly clean energy. To help meet this commitment and the community’s growing energy needs, Duke Energy will construct a new substation and corresponding transmission line. The planned substation will be located south of McCrimmon Parkway, west of Airport Boulevard. Duke Energy is currently studying the surrounding area to identify possible routes for a new transmission line to connect the substation to the existing energy network. See a map of the substation and study area. Once complete, the Morrisville Industrial Transmission Line Project will help strengthen the grid and increase electric capacity for customers now and in the future.
