Kernersville Grid Improvement

Kernersville 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 multiyear grid improvement project in Kernersville.

We are currently making improvements to the poles and wires that deliver electricity to homes and businesses in Kernersville and the surrounding area. This major upgrade will extend our power lines from the Kernersville substation, located on the corner of East Mountain Street and Gralin Street.

Work will be conducted in phases over the next two years and will center around these primary work objectives:

  • Strengthening the power grid to help minimize and avoid power outages, and guard against physical and cyber impacts – 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
  • Give customers more options and control
