VEC Completes 19 Year Project
Over the last 19 years, Volunteer Energy Cooperative (VEC) has completed 26 major substation projects. On January 24, we de-energized the 69kV McDonald Substation in south Bradley County. This substation was the last old TVA Substation on the VEC system that had not been replaced or rebuilt.
This represents a significant accomplishment for all the current and former VEC employees that have been involved in these projects. TVA has also been a major contributor providing new delivery points, which have helped over the years.
Rody Blevins CEO and President stated, “Today VEC has one of the strongest, most up-to-date and technologically advanced substation fleets of any Cooperative in the country.” Blevins went on to say, “These substation assets should serve our members well for decades to come.”
