Broadview Substation to Come Online in October
The new Broadview substation, located in Decherd, is scheduled to be energized at the end of October.
This substation will improve reliability in and around the Tim's Ford Lake area, and will also allow us to pick up extra load from the Lynchburg, Decherd, and Salem areas during certain outages. This substation will also eliminate the need for some planned outages for maintenance, since we will be able to power those areas from a different location.
DREMC works to continuously improve our system to provide our members with increasingly reliable electricity. Stay tuned to our "Construction Zone" to keep informed about some of our major infrastructure improvements.
