Zorn–Seguin Transmission Line Upgrade

Project Name:

Zorn-Seguin Transmission Line Upgrade

Project Location:

The project goes from the Zorn Substation near Zorn in Guadalupe County to the Seguin Substation in Seguin, also in Guadalupe County.

Project Description:

LCRA Transmission Services Corporation (TSC) will increase the capacity of the existing 13.2 mile Zorn-York Creek-Seguin 138-kilovolt (kV) transmission line.

Project Need:

Decreased generation in San Antonio, combined with the loss of the Clear Springs-Geronimo 138-kilovolt (kV) line feeding into the Seguin area, pushes more power through the Zorn-Seguin line causing high overloads.

Project Budget:

$13.680 million.
