Keeping customers connected to a secure, reliable source of electricity is Duquesne Light's primary goal. That’s why we are investing more than $2.9 billion in infrastructure and technology upgrades between 2011 and 2021, reinforcing our commitment to maintaining, and improving, the region’s critical transmission and distribution system. Our dedication to improving the way energy is delivered is just one of the many ways we are working to become your next generation energy company.

A network of 138-kilovolt transmission lines provides power to Duquesne Light customers in West Deer, Indiana, Hampton and Richland townships. With growth from new housing developments, businesses, and medical facilities, as well as projected future growth increasing the demand for energy, this network needs to be extended to enable Duquesne Light to continue to deliver a reliable source of power to customers in this area.  

While still in the early stages of the project, three transmission line route options have been identified. Based on preliminary research, these routes will have the least impact to property owners and the environment. It’s important to note that the proposed route options will continue to be evaluated as DLC works with customers and communities to gather more information to help inform the route decision. 


Construction is currently scheduled for August 2019 to May 2020.

Indiana and West Deer townships.
