The Hitchland-Ochiltree 230 kV transmission line is serving load growth in the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandle areas. The line runs 38 miles between the existing Hitchland Substation located in the north central Texas Panhandle region and the new Ochiltree County Substation near Perryton, Texas.
The existing 115 kV lines between Perryton, Cole and Texas Farms substations were reconfigured and routed through the new Ochiltree County Substation. The 230 kV line provides a stronger transmission source to the Perryton area and improves reliability on the existing 115 kV transmission system.
The project was completed in February 2013.
