Cooks Point Transmission Project

Example transmission structure for proposed project.

The Cooks Point Transmission Project is designed to bring transmission infrastructure and long-term electric reliability to a growing area of Burleson County in Texas. The proposed project includes construction of a new 138-kilovolt (kV) load-serving substation near Cooks Point and a new 138-kV transmission line connecting to an existing substation, either Lyle Wolz or Lyons. In order to provide this essential service, LCRA Transmission Services Corporation is preparing an application for an amendment to its existing Certificate of Convenience and Necessity filed with the Public Utility Commission of Texas.
