Georgia Power readies to upgrade local bulk transmission lines | savannahnow.com

Georgia Power invested $80 million to upgrade downtown Savannah’s power grid.

Now the utility is poised to spend another $50 million to improve the power network across Chatham County.

Georgia Power will host a pair of informational meetings today addressing what it has labeled its West Chatham 230 kilovolt project. The initiative involves the installation of two bulk transmission lines that will bring power to a new substation being built near the Interstate 516-Southwest Bypass interchange.

The project will create an additional source for bulk power into the Savannah area.

“This is one indication of our commitment to keeping the lights on,” said Matt Gignilliat, Georgia Power’s project manager. “And it should be accomplished with minimal inconvenience to the community.”
