Bay Hill Area Grid Improvements

Bay Hill Substation Optimization

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 multiyear grid improvement project in the Bay Hill area.

About the Project

We’re upgrading our electric infrastructure in the Bay Hill area, including improvements in our Bay Hill substation. Work will continue in phases through 2024 and will center around these primary work objectives:

  • Strengthening the power grid to help avoid power outages: Upgrading power lines, poles and essential equipment
  • Improving reliability and reducing outage time: Installing smart, self-healing technology that automatically detects power outages and quickly reroutes power to restore service faster
  • Expanding capacity and preparing the area for sustainable growth: Completing substation improvements, new underground and overhead power lines to provide more capacity to the area
