Central Tulsa Transmission Improvements Project

    The Central Tulsa Transmission Improvements Project strengthens the local electric system and increases electric reliability for area customers. Plans involve replacing deteriorating wooden power poles from the 1950s with steel poles and installing additional wire on existing steel poles.

    These upgrades are important to the Tulsa community because they support local economic development by improving electric reliability. Installing modernized infrastructure helps reduce larger, community sustained outages and reduce more frequent equipment maintenance.
