Ninth Substation to be Energized this Spring
We expect the Betsy Johnson Substation, located adjacent to the Scappoose Industrial Airpark, to begin serving customers this spring.
The new substation will accommodate load growth in the Scappoose area and ensure that we are able to continue providing reliable service to Scappoose area customers. It will serve industrial customers near the airport and residential customers in North Scappoose and South Warren.
In addition to providing power in these areas, it will back up other substations for reliability purposes. This will allow us to reroute power to customers in the event that the Scappoose Substation or Tarbell Substation goes offline because of an outage or for maintenance.
