Volunteer Energy Cooperative energizes new Byrdstown Substation

Volunteer Energy Cooperative energizes new Byrdstown Substation Volunteer Energy Cooperative (VEC) energized the newly completed Byrdstown Substation on September 14. The $2.2 million project includes all new equipment that will help VEC improve system reliability in the area.
In addition to the new substation, system reliability into the Byrdstown area will be enhanced by a new 161 kV transmission line that TVA has put into service to feed the new VEC substation. The new line is fed through TVA’s Kelsey Road Substation in Kentucky and in addition to the increased voltage, the new line features wider rights-of-way, steel poles, higher ground clearance, and all new hardware.
The combination of new equipment is expected to provide for fewer outages and much faster restoration of power when outages do occur.
