Downtown Asheville Grid Improvement

Duke Energy is working hard in your community to improve reliability, reduce outages, strengthen the power grid against severe weather and prepare our system to serve a growing area. As part of this commitment, we are conducting a grid improvement project in downtown Asheville. 

About the Project

  • To help ensure reliable electric service to downtown Asheville, Duke Energy is upgrading the underground electrical infrastructure to increase reliability and resiliency and improve remote restoration capabilities.
  • Duke Energy plans to replace electrical equipment in 32 vaults in the downtown Asheville area between July 2023 and December 2024.
  • Businesses and residents who may experience outages associated with this work will be contacted directly by Duke Energy engagement specialists.
