Directors at CCEC visited and discussed the largest capital investment in the history of the co-op, the Maysville Substation & Transmission Project, which was completed in 2007.
It serves the co-op and its members well in several ways. Most notably, it provides a third power delivery point to our transmission system. That was a huge benefit during Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Dorian when other delivery points were shut down by storm damage.
Vice-president of Engineering & Operations Will Pittman gave the directors a tour of the station and equipment and discussed how electricity travels into the western part of CCEC’s service territory through the station. They also learned how the Engineering & Operations staff keeps the station running at peak performance.
The project included:
A 5.2-acre, 230kV to 115kV transmission substation with distribution addition
.5 miles of 230KV transmission lines
15 miles of 115kV transmission lines from Maysville to Cape Carteret
Participating in the tour were directors Ben Ball, Anthony Nelson, Arland Bell, Alvin West, Fred Fulcher, Dee Irby, Thom Styron, Amy Lock and Doug Fulcher, board attorney Jamie Norment and CEC & General Manager Jake Joplin.
