Western Florida Panhandle Electric Transmission Grid Substations, Lines, and Towers [Data set]

Document Type


Publication Date



The upload consists of 5 different datasets pertaining to the electric transmission grid in the nine counties of the western Florida Panhandle. The area largely coincides with the former operation area of the Gulf Power Company (GPCO) but is not limited to this utility. The five datasets describe the substations, lines, and transmission towers of the grid. The data were created and validated through a variety of datasets from the utility, national data, and state-level information. In total, 195 substations, 1800 miles of transmission lines, and over 18,000 transmission towers were cataloged and described spatially in the data. The spatial files are uploaded as feature classes within a ArcGIS geodatabase. Three metadata files are provided, one each for substations, transmission lines, and transmission towers, which describe the process and sources for creating each data as well as a detailed list of all fields in the files.
