South Hills Capacity Project


As communities in Southwestern Pennsylvania continue to develop and thrive, the demand for energy is growing. West Penn Power and Duquesne Light Company customers in Collier, Scott, Upper St. Clair and Bethel Park Townships are served by a network of 138-kilovolt transmission lines. To maintain a level of service and reliability while increasing the overall capacity and resiliency of the grid in this area, Duquesne Light is planning to replace the existing transmission line wires.


September 2017 to June 2018
