The 138 kV Kilgore Substation Project is proposed to serve new load in the Baytown/Mont Belvieu area. The area is highly industrialized with several chemical facilities and is experiencing a significant distribution load increase with multiple new commercial and residential developments. It is forecasted to have an approximate 25% load growth between 2021 and 2026. The new transmission line and the Kilgore Distribution substation will supply part of this increase in distribution load.

CenterPoint Energy will host a public meeting to share information as well as gather input from the public on the yet-to-be-determined route of a proposed 138 kV transmission line in northwestern Chambers County that will improve the electric reliability of the distribution system in the Mont Belvieu-Baytown Area and serve projected load growth. Representatives from CenterPoint Energy and our routing consultant, Halff Associates will be able to answer questions and discuss the project.
The proposed construction includes a new 138 kV double-circuit transmission line between an existing CenterPoint Energy transmission line located in northwestern Chambers County to one of the three proposed Kilgore Substation sites. The information gathered will be used to help formulate alternate routes for consideration by the Public Utility Commission of Texas.
