Foothills to Emmett Transmission Line Upgrade


安全 and reliability are two of hg8868皇冠下载’s most important values. Maintaining and upgrading power lines and other equipment helps us live up to those values.

That’s why hg8868皇冠下载 plans to rebuild the 138-kilovolt transmission line that runs between Boise and Emmett. 从博伊西河以北开始, the project will stretch about 35 miles as it crosses the Boise foothills to a point near the Emmett Substation on East Main Street in Emmett.

The upgraded line will enable more energy to flow between the two cities, improving reliability as more people and businesses move to the Treasure Valley.

We’ll replace existing wood poles with steel structures that are more resistant to fire. We’ll also add shield wires to protect the line from lightning, which can knock out power and spark wildfires.

Seventy-five years have passed since the Foothills to Emmett line was built. The line has performed well, but much of its equipment needs to be updated. 通过更新重建线路, 强大的设备, we can continue our long tradition of providing reliable energy to customers in the growing communities of Ada and Gem counties.
