Zorn-Seguin Transmission Line Upgrade
The project goes from the Zorn Substation near Zorn in Guadalupe County to the Seguin Substation in Seguin, also in Guadalupe County.
LCRA Transmission Services Corporation (TSC) will increase the capacity of the existing 13.2 mile Zorn-York Creek-Seguin 138-kilovolt (kV) transmission line.
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.
