Appalachian Power and its affiliate, West Virginia Transmission Co., plan to strengthen the electric transmission grid in Huntington by upgrading existing infrastructure.
The Huntington Area Improvements Project includes building approximately 3 miles of transmission line and upgrading existing substations to ensure continued reliable electric service for area customers.
Transmission line construction is expected to start in early 2018 and be completed by fall, with the substation upgrades completed by mid-2019. The estimated project investment is $25 million.
Appalachian Power has announced its proposed line route for the Huntington Area Improvements Project. The route was determined following an information open house this spring where the company introduced study segments, shared details and gathered public input.
