The current primary sources of electricity for the Wimberley area are PEC’s four-mile, 69-KV radial transmission line, connecting the Highway 32 Substation to the Wimberley Substation and the associated 138-69KV autotransformer. The Highway 32 — Wimberley 69-kV transmission line is also relied upon for backup capacity for distribution ties to the Highway 32, Dripping Springs, Rutherford, and Fischer Substations.
PEC is proposing to rebuild and upgrade the Highway 32 — Wimberley 69-kV transmission line. The proposed project will begin at the existing Highway 32 Substation located north of the intersection of Farm-to-Market road (FM) 32 and FM 121, and will extend to the existing Wimberley Substation located west of FM 2325 in Wimberley. The entire project will be approximately four to five miles in length and is estimated to cost between $5.4 million and $12.1 million, depending on the final route approved by the PUC.
