Demand for electricity in the South Valley area of Salt Lake County has exceeded the capacity of some of the electric power facilities and needs to be rebuilt. This project will improve service for existing customers and provide capacity to serve current and future demand for electricity in this area.
Rocky Mountain Power plans to rebuild the existing power line from approximately 10700 South and 1400 West following the existing line until it crosses the Jordan River at approximately 11800 South. The upgrade will include new, taller, poles and wire. The project allows for the upgrade of substations and will allow the lines to serve more electrical power to the area.
The project was anticipated by the Salt Lake County Electrical Plan, which was developed in consultation with area business, government and community leaders in September 2010 and has been presented to all planning commissions in the region.
This is a multi-year plan that is expected to continue during the coming years. As customer needs change, plans to upgrade the electric infrastructure will be adjusted to meet demand.
