Buzzard Point to Ritchie

The Buzzard Point to Ritchie project consists of replacing the existing conductor with a larger conductor for both circuits. Pepco intends to increase the voltage of Circuit 13851, an approximately 11.1 mile underground circuit between the Buzzard Point Generating Station, located in the southwest portion of the District of Columbia, and Pepco’s Ritchie Substation No. 123, located in Seat Pleasant, Maryland, from 138kV to 230kV. Construction began in the summer of 2013 with a final in-service date of early 2015.
