Transmission Line Update

In the early 1990’s a long-range plan was developed to provide “looped” electrical service to the Methow Valley. The concept of a “looped” system means that three lines operate together to provide more consistent service in the case of an outage on one of the lines. Okanogan PUD is currently in the process of constructing a line from Pateros to Twisp to “close the loop” providing redundant electrical service to residents of Okanogan, Pateros and Twisp. Winthrop ultimately will be fed out of a dedicated breaker in the Twisp Substation. Click HERE for details.
