Reliability is a responsibility that Duke Energy Ohio takes very seriously. We are dedicated to modernizing, improving and upgrading the electric system to help meet the growing energy needs of our communities. As part of our commitment to provide reliable energy for homes, schools and businesses, Duke Energy is making improvements at the Remington Substation located at 8930 Glendale Milford Road in Hamilton County, Ohio.

The substation expansion and upgrade will enhance Duke Energy’s operational capability for the community’s growing energy needs, as well as the reliability of the area’s electric service.
Construction will involve expanding the substation approximately 10 feet to the northeast of the existing fence, on Duke Energy property, to accommodate the installation of the modernized equipment.
An existing transmission tower will be removed and replaced with two new steel pole structures on concrete foundations. The new poles will be up to 127 feet in height. The concrete foundations will measure up to 9 feet in diameter. An approximate 200-foot section of a 138-kilovolt (kV) transmission line will be relocated from the former transmission tower into the new substation equipment.
Vegetation clearing for the substation expansion is planned for May 2023.
Construction on the substation expansion is expected to begin in July 2023 and construction for the transmission line portion of the project is planned for spring 2024. All construction is expected to be completed by fall 2024.
A notice to construct, operate and maintain this project is approved by the Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB).
