Project Overview

The South Point Substation project is a system reliability enhancement project needed to support current and future energy growth for Gaston County. The new substation will be located on Canal Road near South Point Road, next to the existing Red Raider Substation in Belmont, N.C.

The new substation is one of several projects in the region designed to strengthen the grid, improve reliability and enhance service to Duke Energy customers.
