Transmission Lines Projects

Building and upgrading infrastructure such as new substations and transmission lines is necessary for ensuring that Union Power continues to provide our members with safe and reliable power. The following projects and upgrades in our service area help the Cooperative deliver reliable power and provide capacity for future load growth. 

Rocky River – Larkhaven Transmission Line Project (Cabarrus/Meck Co.)

Steady growth has occurred in eastern Mecklenburg County and southern Cabarrus County over the past few years, due to continuing residential and commercial development. The growth has resulted in a year-to-year increase in the amount of electric energy needed to serve homes and businesses in the region.
