6.5.13 Arsenal Development and Load-Serving

Tracking Number. 2007-TC-N4

Utility. Xcel Energy

Inadequacy. Xcel Energy has received notification from a private developer of an intent to develop the land formerly occupied by the Twin Cities Ordnance Plant in Arden Hills. Details of this potential development are still coming forward, so the size of the new load is unknown. However, given the operational history and loading on transmission lines in the area, it is anticipated that a development of significant size will require new infrastructure to reliably serve a new load.

A map of the area is shown on the following page.

Schedule. There is no current request to increase power delivery to the area. When a request is made to provide power for redevelopment in the area, a 115 kV line will most likely be brought up to the property from the Arden Hills Substation to Lexington. Until such time that a request to increase power delivery capability to the area is made, this issue will not be reported on further.
