Community Information Meeting Scheduled for Mega Site Water and Sewer Improvements 

posted 6/8/2016

The Greensboro-Randolph Mega Site is planned as the home for a major employer that would provide new manufacturing and supporting jobs, benefitting the entire region. As part of the Mega Site Project, the City of Greensboro will provide water and sewer system improvements to the Mega Site to further enhance and positively impact the local and state economy. 

You are invited! 

Date: Thursday, June 22, 2017
Time: 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Location: Providence Grove High School, 5555 Mack Lineberry Rd, Climax, NC 27233 

The purpose of the meeting is to present the final design and discuss utility easements with property owners. Maps showing the Project area and water and sewer improvements will be available for review and the Project team will be available to answer questions. 

Over the past two years, the Project team completed preliminary field surveys and examinations of the properties along the proposed alignment of the water and sewer pipeline. Survey results were used to determine a final design and need for utility easements. Once easements are acquired and all permits are obtained, construction will begin.

Mega Site Duke Energy Study


updated 2/6/2017 

In June 2016, the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite Foundation announced its plans to partner with Duke Energy to conduct a comprehensive siting study to identify a new transmission line corridor that would minimize impacts to the community and provide a reliable source of electricity to the megasite. The siting study process is a first step to furnish the 1,500-acre megasite with a reliable and efficient source of electrical power. 

Duke Energy took great care to review and carefully consider all of the community input and expert analysis and, based on extensive evaluation, a final corridor has been selected for the future Greensboro-Randolph Megasite 100-kilovolt (kV) transmission line.  

Construction activities will not commence on the future transmission line until the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite Foundation has secured a customer for Duke Energy to supply with power. The timeline for securing a customer is unknown at this time. 

If you have questions or comments about a proposed route, contact Duke Energy at  or at the toll-free phone number, 1-800-365-8979.

Duke Energy has been conducting a siting study for a new transmission line corridor that they say will be needed to provide electricity from Duke Energy’s existing 100-kilovolt (kV) infrastructure to the megasite once a customer is secured. The study is performed by a team of scientists, planners and engineers who collect and analyze environmental, physical, real estate and land use information within the study area to identify potential transmission line corridors. The Alternate Corridor Evaluation and Comparison process is to select a corridor that will minimize impacts on homes, cultural resources, the community and the environment while meeting the legal and engineering requirements of the project.

Public involvement was an essential part of the transmission line siting study process. Community input at the public meetings helped to improve the process and provide a better result. Duke Energy expects to announce their selected route in the first quarter of 2017.

If you have questions or comments about a proposed route, contact Duke Energy at  or at the toll-free phone number, 1-800-365-8979.
