About the Project

The Brazos Valley Connection is a 345 kV electric transmission line that will run from Harris County to Grimes County.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) identified and confirmed a need for a transmission line project from the Zenith Substation in Harris County, to the Limestone Substation in Limestone County. The Brazos Valley Connection is the southern portion of the larger project. The entire project is needed to enhance reliability through increasing available electric supply capability in the Houston area by summer 2018. The project will improve the capacity of the Texas electric grid and strengthen regional transmission capabilities.

Texas is one of the fastest growing states in the nation. In order to meet the growing demands of our state, a dependable power supply is vital for this region. The Brazos Valley Connection will help address much needed future infrastructure improvements while meeting an obligation to provide safe and reliable power.
