Oncor will finalize a multimillion-dollar contract this month with Snyder, Texas-based Weaver Construction to perform substation site grading services for Oncor's Competitive Renewable Energy Zones (CREZ) projects. These substations will help locally generated wind power travel over 850 miles of new Oncor wires to reach Texas consumers.

Weaver Construction, a full service dirt and construction contractor, will complete dirt construction work to prepare approximately 20 sites.

"Our partnership with Weaver Construction makes good business sense, because it helps Oncor continue providing reliable service at a competitive rate - and it's another good example of how CREZ is good for Texas' economy," says Wes Speed, Oncor's CREZ project manager.

In addition, Oncor filed its first application for a CREZ certificate of convenience and necessity (CCN) with the Public Utility Commission of Texas to rebuild its Bowman to Jackson transmission line, a project that will be located primarily within Oncor's existing right of way. Additional CREZ CCN applications will be filed in September and October.
