We are proud to work continuously towards a brighter and greener future for the Suwannee Valley. Here you will find a list of current and past projects that showcase our hard work!
Stagecoach Road Substation
As a cooperative, one of SVEC’s core principles is helping to grow the Suwannee Valley community. That dedication goes beyond simply providing reliable and affordable electricity to doing everything possible to attract new businesses and new jobs to the region.
The construction that recently started on the Stagecoach Road Substation in northwestern Suwannee County is the most recent of these efforts. The new substation will serve residential and commercial growth in the area, while also providing a reliable backup source for adjacent service areas.
The distribution substation plays the role of converting high voltage power from the transmission grid to the distribution system that allows consumers to get power at a useful voltage through the cooperative facilities. The substation equipment includes power transformers, regulators, switching equipment, and breakers along with communication equipment that allows the utility to control and monitor the facility.
Upon completion, Stagechoach Road Substation will provide quality service to members in this service area while meeting future electricity demand requirements for the next thirty years.
