The proposed Fostoria-Fremont Transmission Line Rebuild Project is necessary to modernize infrastructure to enhance the reliability of the electric transmission system in Seneca and Sandusky Counties. The proposed project consists of upgrading about 15 miles of transmission line to 138-kilovolt (kV) and is a projected investment of approximately $22 million.
The proposed upgrade will provide the region with a more reliable power source.
The project will use steel single pole structures that will be approximately 85-feet tall.
AEP Ohio and its affiliate, AEP Ohio Transmission Company, Inc., hosted a public informational open house. The public informational open house took place on November 1, 2017. Visitors offered input, asked questions of project team members and learned more about the new transmission line.
In January 2018, AEP Ohio Transco filed an application with the Ohio Power Siting Board requesting permission to construct this project. The OPSB will review the Application prior to setting dates for public hearings.
