TPUD Board Gives Go-Ahead for Acquiring Easements for Tillamook to Oceanside Transmission Line April 19th

It is the responsibility of Tillamook PUD to deliver safe and reliable electricity to all of our customers. This is achieved through continual system maintenance, infrastructure improvements, designing for resiliency, and planning for future growth in our community.
The Tillamook to Oceanside transmission line and substation project is necessary for Tillamook PUD to continue to fulfill our responsibility to our customers and community.
The scope of this project work has been identified as the most effective approach to resolving three significant issues within our system which include meeting system capacity demands, improving reliability to the customers served in Whiskey Creek, Netarts, and Oceanside, and solving operations and maintenance issues in this area.

During the April 19, 2022 Tillamook PUD Board of Directors Meeting, the Directors voted in approval of a resolution to begin acquiring easements and the substation property for the Tillamook to Oceanside transmission line and substation project. This approval authorizes Tillamook PUD staff to continue collaborating with property owners to secure easements along the Tillamook to Oceanside transmission line route.
