Selective Transmission Projects

China-Stowell 230 kV Transmission Line Project (Jefferson, Chambers, and potentially Liberty Counties)

Southeast Texas' population and economic opportunities are growing year by year, fueled by dependable, affordable electrical power. For many years, the Jefferson and Chambers Counties have been home to important industrial facilities as well as rural and agricultural communities. The need for reliable power to foster growth is just as important to Entergy Texas, Inc. as it is to the business, industrial and residential customers we serve.
 
Entergy Texas' transmission engineers and planners look ahead to ensure that our transmission system will continue to reliably serve our customers, both now and into the future. The China-Stowell Transmission Project will enable us to meet an important need in Southeast Texas by adding a new transmission line by mid-2019.
 
The three-part project consists of the following:
 
1. Entergy Texas will expand the existing China Substation near China, Texas to add new 230 kV infrastructure.
2. Entergy Texas will expand the existing Stowell Substation near Stowell, Texas to add new 230 kV infrastructure and a new 230/138 kV autotransformer.
3. A new 230 kV transmission line will be constructed from the China Substation to the Stowell Substation.
 
There are a number of routes that the new transmission line could take between the two substations. Potential routes, along with the various segments that they would be comprised of, are provided in the maps below.
 
All routes and route segments included in this notice are available for selection and approval by the Public Utility Commission of Texas.

At Entergy Texas, we have a simple set of values: Focus on our customers, treat people with respect and act with integrity. Our project construction plan will be developed with you, our valued customer, in mind. Once work begins, we will work safely during reasonable hours with as little inconvenience to you as possible.
