Glenworth Double Circuit

Dairyland Power Cooperative plans to rebuild 1.5 miles of two, 69,000-volt (69 kV) transmission lines between the ITC Glenworth Transmission Substation located on State Highway 65 in Worth County, Minn., to the existing Dairyland Exol Distribution Substation transmission line. The project will involve constructing a new line and structures along an existing Dairyland transmission corridor and transferring the existing transmission line to the newly built structures in a double-circuit configuration. This will reduce the amount of structures to maintain for the two separate line circuits and improve the system reliability for the area by extending the existing Dairyland Exol Distribution Substation transmission line all the way to the ITC Glenworth Transmission Substation.
