Entergy Texas’ new substation in Liberty County should improve service, support economic development

Entergy Texas successfully installed a new substation that will help improve reliability and support the growing electricity needs in Liberty County.

The new Colony substation improves reliability in Dayton, Texas, and will support the expected commercial development along the Grand Parkway area. 

“Our customers depend on us to deliver affordable and reliable service to help power their daily lives,” said Melanie Taylor, vice president of reliability at Entergy Texas. “The completion of the Colony substation is another example our commitment to strengthen and modernize our electrical system and enable growth throughout our service territory.” 

Liberty County is home to more than 100,000 people, which is an 11 percent population increase from 2020. As the area continues to grow, the new Colony substation will play a significant role in supporting the increased energy needs for residential, commercial and industrial customers. 

“Liberty County, specifically the City of Dayton, is on the rise as developers, businesses and individuals consider moving to the area,’ said Paul Blackburn, Entergy Texas customer service manager. “The new Colony substation will help provide reliable power to customers and support economic growth.”  

At Entergy, our business is centered around our customers, which is why we are constantly making improvements to our electric distribution system to deliver reliable power.

  1. How about giving us the option to shop around for energy instead of forcing us to use the city of Liberty’s outrageously expensive energy?

  2. Excuse me…. I’m sorry. It’s not the energy that’s expensive it’s that mysterious “fuel charge” we all see on our bill that doesn’t make sense
