ALLEN, Texas – May 18, 2016 – Brazos Electric Cooperative, CoServ Electric’s generation and transmission provider, conducted a three-hour public meeting Tuesday to share information about a proposed transmission line and substation project planned in western Collin County.
About 350 landowners within 300 feet of proposed routes/sites received a notification of this meeting at Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church via U.S. mail in April, and more than 400 area residents attended.
Much of CoServ’s service territory is experiencing tremendous residential and commercial growth, and the Kittyhawk project will provide for increased capacity and reliability for CoServ Members who live in the area, which is currently served by Brazos’ Craig Ranch, Custer and Lebanon substations. Because of rapid growth, these substations will soon reach their capacity, and the study area will lack the capacity to meet the projected load.
Staff from Brazos, CoServ and Cox | McLain Environmental Consulting answered questions about the project and encouraged residents to visit Brazos’ Kittyhawk project site and click under “Documents” for more details.
