Thomson Vogtle Transmission Project

The Thomson-Vogtle 500 kV transmission line is being built to add the necessary transmission infrastructure to support the two new nuclear units for the Vogtle plant. The line route is 55 miles long and begins at Plant Vogtle in Waynesboro, Georgia, and ends at the Thomson Primary substation, southeast of Thomson. The route runs through Burke, Jefferson, Warren and McDuffie counties and existing transmission line corridors were utilized over approximately 13 miles of the line route. The transmission line was completed in April 2017.
