Due to the growing needs in Jasper County, a new transmission line approximately two miles in length will be constructed in the Hardeeville area. Central Electric Power Cooperative, Inc. (Central) is responsible for working with your local energy cooperative to provide you with reliable power and will be completing this necessary project.
To complete this project, the line route must first be decided. This decision process involves community input and objective criteria to decide a route that minimizes social and environmental impacts while meeting the engineering, construction, and maintenance requirements. The project will not impact your current power or billing but will still better serve your future energy needs by enhancing the reliability of the electric service in the area.
For more information, please read through the rest of the material on this webpage, including the attached pdf handouts at the bottom of the page.
Contact Central about this project through email or call the automated voice messaging system. A staff member will respond to you within two business days.
