This upgrade is one of a group of projects designed to improve the reliability of the electric system serving southeastern Massachusetts, both today and in the future.

Where Is This Work Being Done?

This new 115-kilovolt (kV) transmission line has been constructed between our Carver and Kingston substations.

The line runs approximately eight miles within a right of way (power line corridor), passing through portions of Carver, Plympton, and Kingston.
