St. George Island Area 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 on St. George Island.
About the Project
We’re upgrading our electric infrastructure on St. George Island, including improvements in our St. George Island substation. Work will be conducted in phases beginning in 2023 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
