Tampa Electric is committed to providing reliable, cost-effective electricity to you and your neighbors in Winter Haven.
Tampa Electric upgraded a power line in your neighborhood. The company upgraded nearly 3 miles of a 69-kilovolt (kV) power line from the South Eloise Substation, on the north side of Cameron Road, east of U.S. 17, northeast to the East Winter Haven Substation, at Avenue D Southwest and Southwest Second Street.
This equipment upgrade is needed to ensure the homes and businesses in your area continue to receive reliable power. (Please see attached map.)
The project replaced nine existing wooden poles, which vary in height between 40 and 75 feet tall, with eight steel poles, between 75 and 85 feet tall.
Construction was completed spring 2017.
