South Lynchburg Area Improvements

In order to ensure adequate and reliable electric service and to accommodate future growth, Appalachian Power plans to construct one new substation and approximately 9 miles of new 138 kilovolt (kV) electric transmission line to connect substations in the Campbell County and Lynchburg area.

The South Lynchburg Area Improvements Project was announced in November 2012. Following extensive public comment, the company identified a preferred proposed route for the project. In November 2013, the company filed a request with the Virginia State Corporation Commission to construct. Approval was received by the VA (SCC) in June 2014. The project is expected to cost approximately $30 million and has an in-service date of mid-2017.

Project Updates

Construction on Lynbrook Substation is currently ongoing. Right-of-way clearing between the existing George St. and the Lynbrook substations started last fall and is on schedule.
