Electric utility boundary lines in US

2017-09-15 20:38:08

I'm looking for shapefiles or other spatial definitions for electric utility service areas in the United States. Does this exist in a single place anywhere?

The US Energy Information Administration has a few geographic resources (like the US Energy Mapping System and the State Energy Data System but there's no sign of a collection of electric utility service areas.

On a state-by-state basis, there are a variety of resources available. This might provide a roadmap for motivated parties to request shapefiles and assemble the dataset. I'm going to make this answer a 'community wiki' in case other people want to flesh it out with more states or hunt further for GIS files on states where PDFs were easier to find..

Arkansas (map, shp, gdb)

California (map, shp)

Connecticut (gdb, shp) Utility Infrastructure and Pipelines

Illinois (unofficial PDF map)

Indiana (map, shp)

Iowa (pdf map)

Kentucky

Massachusetts (map, shp; town-level detail only)

Minnesota (.shp, .gdb, .k

  • A website by the Dept of Energy called NEPAnode has this, disclaimer it is a project I manage. You can downloaded these vector datasets in a number of formats including shapefile:

  • I was able to obtain TVA's service territory from TVA, but otherwise I have not found anything in addition to the resources listed above.

    (Note I would have added this as a comment to the existing thread but I need a higher reputation I guess.)

  • I am in the same situation now and wondering if there is a more updated version someone has found.
