Pepco Open House on Capital Grid Project Informative

Pepco’s open house at E.L. Haynes provided an overview of their upcoming Capital Grid project. The Capital Grid effort is Pepco’s 10 year infrastructure project that is designed to:

  1. Upgrade the power system;
  2. Increase capacity; and,
  3. Network the system.

Generally, the project will rebuild the substations at Harvard Street and Champlain Street, as well as install new transmission lines from Takoma south to the waterfront. The entire project is estimated to be completed by 2026.

The following video by Pepco provides an overview:

Installing the new transmission lines will impact New Hampshire Avenue from the District line to Georgia Avenue, and then south on Georgia Avenue to Gresham Street. There it will travel west to the Harvard Substation. The video below provides an idea of how the work will be performed on Georgia and other area streets.

Pepco has set up a Web page where people can learn more about the Capital Grid project (click here).
