Acushnet to Fall River Reliability Project

The proposed 115 kilovolt (kV) overhead transmission line will be constructed on the south side of an existing transmission corridor that already contains one transmission line.

The Acushnet to Fall River Reliability Project is one of several planned infrastructure upgrades in southeast Massachusetts needed to support the growing transmission needs of the area well into the future. The transmission grid serves as the backbone of our electric system and is vital to our region’s safety, security, and economic prosperity.

The Acushnet to Fall River Reliability Project is a joint project of National Grid and Eversource.

The proposed overhead approximately 12.1-mile, 115 kilovolt (kV) transmission line will be constructed in an existing transmission right-of-way, with approximately 7.9 miles located in Acushnet, Dartmouth and New Bedford, MA (Eversource Energy) and approximately 4.2 miles in Fall River, MA (National Grid). The new line begins at the Industrial Park Tap in Acushnet, MA and terminates at the Bell Rock Substation in Fall River, MA.
