Xcel Energy is planning to build an approximately 5-mile, 115kV transmission line within the City of Fargo and Reed Township, North Dakota. The line will be a 2nd circuit connecting Xcel Energy’s existing Maple River and Red River substations on new right-of-way.
A Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity required for the project was approved by the North Dakota Public Servce Commission in november, 2017.
Contruction of the project will begin in August 2018.
The project is anticipated to be in-service by June of 2019.
The Maple River to Red River Project will provide increased reliability of electric service in the Fargo area by reducing overloads on neighboring lines and transformers. The project will help meet reliability standards without having to interrupt electric service to customers.
