Xcel Energy Invests in New Substations and High-Voltage Transmission Lines

Strong agricultural demand and general economic growth in the Texas South Plains region centered on Plainview, Texas, has triggered a series of high-value capital improvement projects on the Xcel Energy system that will boost the reliability and capacity of the regional power grid. As part of its Power for the Plains capital expansion, Xcel Energy is investing $106.7 million in new substations and high-voltage transmission lines in Hale, Castro, Parmer, Swisher, Bailey and Lamb counties that should be mostly completed by year's end. In the Plainview area, the company has built two new substations and has completed or is constructing several new transmission lines. These projects includes the new Newhart Substation five miles northeast of Hart, Texas. A new 115-kilovolt line 18 miles in length connecting Newhart Substation to Kress Substation near Kress, Texas. A new 115-kilovolt line 24 miles in length connecting Newhart Substation to Castro Substation, located about five miles southwest of Dimmitt, Texas. The new Kiser Substation northeast of Plainview. A new 115-kilovolt line 8.7 miles in length connecting Kiser Substation to Cox Substation, located east of Plainview. Projects now under construction or being planned includes a new 115-kilovolt transmission line from Newhart to the Hart Industrial and Lamton substations in Castro and Lamb counties, respectively. A new 230-kilovolt transmission line from Newhart to Swisher County Substation. A new 115-kilovolt transmission line connecting Kiser Substation to Kress Substation. In addition to these substation and transmission investments, the company is investing in new and upgraded distribution lines that deliver power directly to homes, farms and businesses in the region. All the Plainview-area projects were identified as critical improvements in studies by the Southwest Power Pool, the regional transmission organization responsible for grid reliability across portions of eight south-central states, including the Xcel Energy Texas-New Mexico service area.
