Growth Area 7—Kittyhawk

#CoServ2020 is a communications initiative designed to keep CoServ Members, Customers and communities informed about plans and projects to serve the increased energy demand prompted by the extraordinary commercial and residential growth in CoServ's service territory. This page focuses on Growth Area 7-Kittyhawk, a project planned along the Sam Rayburn Tollway in western Collin County.

CoServ has identified the need for a new substation and transmission line to serve the fast-growing residential and commercial development along the Sam Rayburn Tollway (State Highway 121) corridor in Collin County. The study area is bounded by Eldorado Parkway on the north, State Highway 75 on the east, Independence Parkway on the west and the Hedgcoxe Road/West Bethany boundary on the south.

When CoServ identifies new substation needs, we contact our wholesale generation and transmission provider, Brazos Electric Cooperative, to help determine potential substation sites and to assess potential power transmission requirements to serve the proposed substation. Serving the new substation will require expanding the reach of existing transmission line through a Public Utility Commission process called a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN). Learn about how you can have a voice in the CCN process once it begins.
