New Transmission Line from Center Point to Moss Lake Substation
Gordon and Whitfield Counties, Georgia
On August 8, 2007, TVA issued a final environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact for the construction and operation of a new 15.5-mile, 230/115-kV transmission line and substation in Gordon and Whitfield Counties, Georgia. The facilities are proposed to increase reliability and relieve transmission line overloading in the service area of North Georgia Electric Membership Corporation (NGEMC).
The new transmission line would connect the existing TVA Center Point Substation and the new TVA Moss Lake Substation. Additional construction activities would include a connection from the proposed transmission line to NGEMC’s Tilton Substation and upgrades to the Center Point Substation.
TVA has reviewed the public comments regarding the proposal and evaluated the environmental data on alternative routes for the transmission line. Based on this, TVA has selected a modified Route 13 alternative as the preferred route.
