All of us at Entergy Texas, Inc. are 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. Ensuring 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 proposes the addition of new electric transmission infrastructure in Montgomery and/or Liberty Counties and plans to construct a primarily single-pole double-circuit 138 kilovolt (kV) electric transmission line (proposed transmission line). This proposed transmission line would connect a new substation (the Falcon Distribution Substation) to the existing Entergy Texas Jacinto to Splendora 138 kV Transmission Line (L-871) or the Splendora to Apollo 138 kV Transmission Line (L-571). The Falcon Substation is planned to be located approximately one mile east of the intersection of Farm-to-Market Roads 1010 and 2090 in Liberty County. The new transmission line could be approximately 4-7 miles in length and follow a path through Montgomery and/or Liberty Counties until it reaches the new Falcon Distribution Substation, depending on the final route ultimately approved by the Public Utility Commission of Texas.
The transmission line will be erected utilizing either concrete or steel predominately single-pole structures within a right-of-way that would be up to 100 feet wide. This right-of-way consists of approximately 50 feet on either side of the centerline of the proposed transmission line, some of which could overlap with other compatible rights-of-way, depending on the final location. Adding this infrastructure will help ensure a modern and reliable transmission system to power our community for years to come – as well as help ensure the future economic success of the region. As a landowner, you may be affected by this project. How or whether this line affects you will depend on the final transmission line route selected and approved by the PUCT.

All routes and route segments included in this notice are available for selection and approval by the Public Utility Commission of Texas. If approved, only one route from an alternative “Cut-In” option to an alternative “Substation Site” option will be selected by the PUCT for ETI to construct the project.
