Kino to DeMoss-Petrie 138 Kilovolt Transmission Line

Tucson Electric Power (TEP) is developing plans for a new transmission line to help satisfy growing energy needs, support the University of Arizona and University Medical Center Tucson – Banner, and strengthen electric reliability for TEP customers within and near the project study area.

TEP is identifying a route for the Kino to DeMoss-Petrie (Kino-DMP) 138-Kilovolt (kV) Transmission Line, which will connect the Kino Substation to the existing DeMoss-Petrie Substation. The line also will interconnect with the planned UA North Substation, which TEP expects to build north of the UA main campus.

TEP must obtain route approval from the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) before the line can be built. The company will use public input to identify up to three alternative transmission line routes that will be included in its application to the ACC.
