A strong and reliable transmission system is the backbone of PowerSouth’s operations, and the cooperative takes advantage of technology to improve upon already impressive reliability metrics.
As communities in the service territory grow, PowerSouth maintains and develops the transmission system to accommodate the energy needed to support that growth. With more than 2,000 miles of transmission line and nearly 300 substations in service, PowerSouth is continually replacing and upgrading infrastructure to ensure top-notch reliability.
PowerSouth’s transmission reliability metrics are as good as or better than any other utility in the Southeast. These performance measures are the result of sound maintenance and operation practices, the addition of advanced technology and improved system protection systems.
