$37 million Substation Enhances Reliability in Northwest Mississippi

JACKSON, Miss.– Entergy Mississippi has completed construction of a new distribution substation in the Snowden Grove Park community, near Tchulahoma Road in Southaven. The substation is a part of a $37 million project, which included constructing nearly two miles of new transmission lines, 12 miles of new and rebuilt distribution lines, and 74 new composite poles.

The project enhances reliability for the existing transmission and distribution systems by providing capacity for future residential, commercial and industrial growth in DeSoto County.

“Northwest Mississippi is one of the fastest growing areas in the state, and we’re proud to be a part of the progress,” said Haley Fisackerly, Entergy Mississippi president and CEO. “This new substation allows us to support and enable economic growth in the area and continue to provide reliable service at affordable rates.”

Construction began April 2022, and the substation was officially put into service December 22, 2023. With a new amphitheater and several restaurants, forecasts show the growth trends in the area could have created overload conditions between nearby Greenbrook and Plum Point substations. Bringing the Snowden Park Substation into service alleviates those risks and improves reliability for all three substations.

As a customer-centered business, Entergy Mississippi continuously makes improvements to the electric distribution system to deliver reliable power. This work makes the electric system in the DeSoto County area more interconnected with higher capacity, which will help the company deliver power now and into the future.
