Chelan County PUD is looking for community input as we find a location for a new substation and transmission line in southeast Chelan, near the Chelan Dam. Energy use in the Lake Chelan Valley has grown 3 to 5 times higher than in other areas of the county since 2015, and the existing substations serving this area are nearing capacity. This new substation will help meet increased electrical demand, while maintaining reliable electrical service for customers in the Lake Chelan Valley.
