Projects Pending Approval

Bolton Substation

AEP Ohio plans to construct a new 138-kilovolt (kV) to 13-kV substation in Jackson Township in Franklin County, just north of the intersection of Holt Road and Big Run South Road. The company will construct the new approximate 2.5-acre substation on a 4-acre site owned by AEP Ohio. The estimated investment of this Project is $13 million.

Eastern Ohio Tri-County Improvements

AEP Ohio is investing approximately $66 million in improvements to the power grid in Tuscarawas, Harrison and Carroll counties. Improvements create a 138-kilovolt loop in eastern Ohio essential to providing reliable electric. Enhancements are necessary as a result of an increase in economic development related to the shale gas industry in the area.

Haviland - Van Wert Transmission Line Rebuild Project

The Haviland – Van Wert Transmission Line Rebuild is an approximate $20 million investment to improve the electric transmission system in northwest Ohio. The line connects the Haviland and Van Wert substations in Paulding and Van Wert counties.

Herlan-Blue Racer Transmission Line

AEP Ohio plans to build a 138-kilovolt (kV) transmission line in Franklin and Seneca townships in Monroe County. The new line will connect the new Herlan Substation to Blue Racer Substation. The Herlan-Blue Racer transmission line will be about 3 miles long. The company expects to invest approximately $7 million into this project.

Southeast Ohio Area Improvements

AEP Ohio, AEP Ohio Transmission Company, Inc., Buckeye Power and Washington Electric Cooperative have reached an agreement to improve electric service reliability in southeast Ohio. This approximate $300 million project includes replacing and upgrading aging electrical equipment in parts of Washington, Monroe and Noble counties.

West Bellaire-Glencoe Transmission Line

AEP Ohio plans to rebuild a 69-kilovolt (kV) transmission line to 69/138-kV in Pultney, Richland and Smith townships in Belmont County. The line connects the West Bellaire Substation to Glencoe Substation. The West Bellaire-Glencoe transmission line will be about 6 miles long.

Approved Projects

Barnesville-Summerfield Transmission Line

AEP Ohio plans to rebuild a 69-kilovolt (kV) transmission line to 138-kV in Marion and Beaver townships of Noble County, Millwood Township of Guernsey County and Warren Township of Belmont County. The new line connects the Barnesville Substation to Summerfield Substation. The Barnesville-Summerfield transmission line will be about 16 miles long. The company expects to invest approximately $20 million into this project.

Biers Run-Circleville Transmission Line

The Ohio Power Siting Board approved this 138-kilovolt (kV) transmission line proposed by AEP Ohio to construct as part of the Biers Run Project. This new approximate 19-mile transmission line will be located Ross and Pickaway counties and will connect the Biers Run Substation to the existing Circleville Substation.

Findlay Area Improvements

AEP Ohio is rebuilding approximately 30-miles of 34.5-kilovolt (kV) transmission line in northwest Ohio to 69 kV. The improvements in Wood and Hancock counties proactively replace an infrastructure that has reached an age where it needs to be replaced. Proactively rebuilding the line improves reliability for customers across the region.

Gable Substation

The Ohio Power Siting Board approved AEP Ohio’s application to construct the Gable Substation in Jefferson County. AEP Ohio plans to construct this new 138-kilovolt (kV) substation in Wells Township, approximately 10 miles southwest of Steubenville. The company will construct the new 1.6-acre substation on a 3-acre property owned by AEP Ohio.

Lincoln-Berrywood Transmission Line

AEP Ohio plans to build a 69-kilovolt (kV) transmission line in several townships in Delaware County. The Lincoln-Berrywood transmission line will be about 17 miles long. The company expects to invest about $25 million in this transmission line upgrade.

SouthCaldwell - Macksburg Transmission Line

The proposed South Caldwell-Macksburg transmission line is part of the overall Marietta Area Improvements Project. The 23-kilovolt (kV) infrastructure has reached an age where it is in need of rebuild and redesign to improve reliability for the customers across the region. Bringing additional power sources into the region will improve the electric service reliability.

Speidel-Barnesville Transmission Line

AEP Ohio plans to rebuild a 69-kilovolt (kV) transmission line to 138-kV in Warren Township in Belmont County. This line connects the Speidel Substation to the Barnesville Substation.
