North Desoto Estates Service Improvements

SWEPCO is replacing in North Desoto Estates more than 20,000 feet of underground electric cable and replacing 78 transformers to better serve you. This $3 million investment will improve the safety and reliability of service for customers in this Stonewall neighborhood.

How will this impact me?

  • SWEPCO’s subcontractor Volt Power will be working in customers’ backyards and other areas where the underground cable and equipment are located.
  • Please make arrangements to keep your outdoor pets safe while crews are working in your backyard.

What about my fence?

  • We will attempt to notify you at least 48 hours prior to temporarily removing fences.
  • Fences will be replaced as soon as possible, likely within one to two days.

What about my landscaping?

  • Your landscaping may be temporarily removed in order to replace underground cable.
  • Some landscaping – even outside of SWEPCO’s right of way – may need to be removed or trimmed to accommodate workers and trucks.
  • Your landscaping located outside of SWEPCO’s right of way an/d 10 feet or more away from power lines and facilities will be replaced or replanted.

Will I lose power?

  • Some planned outages will be required in order for crews to safely work on electrical facilities in the neighborhood.
  • You will receive an automated phone call at least 48 hours prior to a planned outage.
  • Outages may be isolated. They may not impact all of your neighbors.
  • Please log into your account at and update your phone number.

How long will the project take?

The entire project is estimated to last through fall 2020.
