Morocco Substation

To alleviate stress on the transmission system and provide a more stable and reliable source of energy for the area, ITC will build a new substation, named Morocco, in Deerfield Township. It will connect the existing local 138,000-volt (138 kV) system to a 345,000-volt (345 kV) line. The Morocco substation will use a transformer to step the voltage down from 345 kV to 138 kV to serve the local system.

The scheduled suspension of the Whiting coal-fired generation station in Monroe County in April 2016 will place additional stress on the area’s transmission system which could cause low voltages.

The Morocco substation will be built on land at the northwest corner of the intersection of Simpson/Morocco Road and County Line Road, close to the intersection of the two transmission lines mentioned above. There will be minimal additional line construction required. The project was completed in 2015.
