Clemson University Facilities is working on a major electrical distribution upgrade project that will increase the reliability of the campus electrical system as well as allow future load growth for the campus. This project is expected to take until August of 2021 to complete and will require several planned outages during the course of the project for parts of campus. This project work began in 2012 and has greatly reduced the annual number of major unplanned outages on the campus from previous years.
Duke Energy is working to relocate the existing 44kV transmission line that feeds campus so that a new 100kV transmission line and electrical substation can be built to feed campus as part of this upgrade project. A campus wide 4 hour electrical outage will be required to tie in this temporary transmission line.
The target time and date for this outage is 9 AM to 1 PM on Friday, December 28th, 2018
