Bavarian Substation

The PUD is working with the community to find a location for a new substation in the Leavenworth area to support growth and development in the Upper Valley.  The existing double-bank substation serving this area is nearing capacity. 

The consultant completed their analysis on the three possible site locations in mid-January. 

On February 1, 2017, the PUD met with the community group to present the completed site analysis and gather additional input.

On February 13, 2017 PUD staff held a community meeting to present the completed site analysis for the three possible substation site locations.  The presentation included a cost breakdown for each site, more detailed transmission and distribution route alternatives, and renderings of what a substation would look like on each of the identified locations.  The PUD has made no formal commitment to any property nor a specific site and continues to seek community input.  Public comment is now open between Feb. 2 and Mar. 2.

The next steps will be to bring the recommendations from the community along with the completed site analysis to the PUD Board of Commissioners meeting on March 6. 

Updating this website and our outreach efforts via email and direct mail will continue as we seek to reach consensus for the much-needed Leavenworth substation site.
