New Buffalo Area Improvements Project

Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) is planning on rebuilding the 69-kilovolt (kV) transmission line that will connects the Bosserman Substation to the New Buffalo Substation. The improvements in Delaware and Madison counties are essential to ensure continued reliable electricity is available for local customers. The existing transmission infrastructure has reached an age where it is in need of replacement to improve reliability for area customers.

Rebuilding approximately 7-miles of transmission line decreases potential outages and speeds recovery of service when outages occur.

Project Updates

Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) cordially invites you to attend a public informational open house. The public informational open house will take place Thursday, December 14, 2017, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at New Buffalo High School & Middle School, 1112 E. Clay St., New Buffalo, MI 49177. Visitors may come and go at any time during the workshop. Community residents and landowners can offer input, ask questions of project team members and learn more about the new transmission line.
