Community Update Regarding Proposed Pepco Substation
Wednesday October 24, 2018
In recent weeks, a number of stakeholders have inquired about the Pepco substation proposed for location at 1st & K Streets NW. The proposed substation is one component of Pepco’s planned Capital Grid Project that, if approved:
- upgrades three existing substations in the District and Maryland;
- constructs a new Mount Vernon Substation to support areas projected to experience significant growth; and
- builds a new 10-mile underground transmission line to connect the substations and create a networked system through which electricity is delivered to Pepco’s customers.
Given the project’s significance to our community, we felt it important to provide stakeholders with additional information about the proposal – including how you can stay connected and further engage – via the following three fact sheets:
