Right of Way Service, Inc. has over 50 years of experience purchasing right of ways in Texas, and 27 years facilitating projects for electric service companies throughout the state. Our team has worked on rebuilds, new lines, cut-ins, relocations, wind farms, substations, switching stations, power stations, and a number of communication facility projects.
