New Transmission Interconnection
New Transmission Line Construction Project
BTU is planning on constructing a new 138 kilovolt (kV) transmission line in northwest Brazos County and northeast Burleson County.
The proposed 138kV transmission line project will begin at the existing BTU Steele Store Substation located on the corner of State Highway 21 and Farm to Market Road 50 and will extend to the Lower Colorado River Authority Transmission Service Corporation’s (LCRA TSC) Cooks Point Substation.
The Cooks Point Substation is located about half a mile southeast of State Highway 21 on County Road 214, and is currently under construction.
BTU has asked for input from potential landowners who may have property along the various routes that have been preliminarily proposed.
For more information, please visit the project website. The website includes details of the project, maps of preliminary routes, a recording of a virtual meeting explaining the project and additional ways to contact us if you have questions or would like to provide input.
Entities seeking to interconnect to BTU’s Transmission System should contact BTU to request the interconnection requirements. These requirements address the interconnection of Generation, Transmission, and End-User facilities.
