Pineville, N.C., City Council Approves Substation Proposal

The City Council for the public power community of Pineville, N.C., recently approved a plan for the construction of a new electric substation to serve new electric loads.

“Additional developments are in progress or in the planning stages to be located in Pineville that will require more electric capacity than is currently available to maintain reliable electric service to all customers,” the town said in December 2023.

The addition of the new substation “will provide capacity for many years to come and will serve as a back-up source to an existing substation that will increase system reliability to help prevent power outages,” the town said.

The location for the new substation “was not determined without an extensive investigation into all possible sites,” Pineville said.
