Entergy Texas is committed to ensuring a safe, reliable, affordable, and sustainable supply of power for our customers. Part of that commitment requires working today to plan for our region’s infrastructure needs to ensure we are able to meet future growth. Providing reliable and affordable electricity is central to the future success of the communities we serve, and we are committed to working with our customers to power the future.    

Entergy Texas is planning to construct a new double-circuit 138 kilovolt transmission line approximately 0.75 to 1.5 miles in length in Montgomery County. The new transmission line would “cut-in and out” from Entergy Texas’ existing Jacinto to Splendora 138 kV transmission line (L-871) to the new Cole Road 138 kV Substation. The final route will be determined by the Public Utility Commission of Texas. 

The new Cole Road 138 kV Substation is located approximately 0.25 miles northwest of the intersection of Interstate 69 and Brice Lane. 

If approved, the project will support and enable economic growth as well as load growth in Southeast Texas. The new line will provide greater reliability to the Southeast Texas region by adding a new transmission source into the growing area. 

Entergy Texas operates within the Midcontinent Independent System Operator, which is a regional transmission organization that manages the flow of power across its footprint. MISO has identified this project as subject to federal reliability standards. The project will increase operational flexibility, help meet the growing power demands of Southeast Texas, and increase reliability and resiliency during extreme events, such as Winter Storm Uri.

All routes and route segments included in this notice are available for selection and approval by the Public Utility Commission of Texas.
