Dilworth Community Grid Improvements

Dilworth Community Grid Improvements

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 Dilworth. 

We recently completed a major upgrade to the Kenilworth substation, located on Ordermore Avenue, that serves Dilworth, South End and the surrounding area. Now, we are making improvements in Dilworth to the poles and wires that deliver electricity to your home or business.

Work has been conducted in phases over the past few years and the next phase of construction will begin in February 2023, focusing on these primary objectives:

  • Strengthening the power grid to 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
