Growth Area 2—Stonebrook

#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 2-Stonebrook. Click here for details and updates about other growth areas.

CoServ has identified the need for a new substation and transmission line to serve growing load and maintain reliability in Frisco, north of Lebanon Road and west of the Dallas North Tollway. 

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 through a Public Utility Commission (PUC) process called a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN)

PROJECT HISTORY: In August 2013, as required by the PUC, Brazos notified landowners affected by proposed transmission routes along Main Street and Stonebrook Parkway. Public feedback prompted a re-evaluation of routes and research into alternatives. Over the next 16 months, CoServ and Brazos personnel worked diligently with leadership of Frisco, Little Elm and The Colony and engaged with various residential, city, county, state and federal sources to identify and evaluate several route options. Serving the future energy needs of our communities is CoServ's responsibility and priority.
