West Wenatchee Area Substation

Chelan County PUD is exploring a location for a new substation to serve the West Wenatchee area. The existing substations currently serving the area are nearing capacity. A new substation is needed to redistribute existing electrical load and meet further growth and development.

Community Outreach

This fall, the PUD will assess exploration of some properties around N Western and Springwater avenues in Wenatchee. We are committed to involving the public in the substation siting process. Initial exploration is anticipated to be complete by the end of the year. Starting in early 2023, the PUD will engage interested stakeholders in the site selection process. If you want to learn more about the site selection process, please let us know here
