Growth Area 5—Lacey Oak

CoServ has identified the need for a new substation to serve the areas around Flower Mound, Bartonville and Double Oak and to prevent an overload of existing substations in those areas. 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. It is likely that serving the new substation will require expanding the reach of existing transmission line. In order to do this, Brazos must file an application with the Public Utility Commission of Texas to amend its Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN).

STATUS: Brazos Electric expects to file a CCN amendment request for this project with the PUC in late August or early September. More details about this project can be found by clicking this FAQ and the links under the "Documents" heading on Brazos Electric's Lacey Oak project site.
