Cool Spring to Indian River Transmission Line Rebuild

Delmarva Power is committed to providing safe, reliable, and affordable service for our customers and communities. As part of this effort, we are planning a $21.5-million project to rebuild and upgrade existing transmission and distribution lines between the Cool Spring substation and the Indian River substation near Millsboro. Maintaining the safe and reliable service our customers expect requires ongoing work to modernize the local energy grid. These efforts are part of a broader reliability improvement plan to further reduce the frequency and duration of power outages for Delaware customers. The project includes the replacement of 88 wood structures with 89 galvanized steel poles—meant to strengthen the local energy grid and establish stronger reliability for 75,800 residents of Sussex County that rely on Delmarva Power for their energy needs. 

Construction is expected to begin in January 2020 and the project will be in-service by November 2020—weather permitting. For more information on this project, please review our project fact sheet.
