The Cass County Area Improvement project enhances the electric transmission system in Cass and St. Joseph counties. The line connects the Kenzie Creek and Corey Substations in southwest Michigan. Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) will upgrade the existing facilities to provide a reliable flow of electricity to its customers. The approximately $75 million investment is critical due to an aging system and to accommodate for the region’s future growth.
Project components include:
- Upgrading approximately 26 miles of existing 69 kV transmission line to 69/138 kV
- Improving Kenzie Creek, Pokagon, Stone Lake and Corey substations
