Hamilton - Butler Area Improvements

    Indiana Michigan Power is considering upgrades to the electric transmission network in DeKalb County in eastern Indiana. The area's power grid must be upgraded because of the age and condition of transmission facilities.

    Preliminary solutions could include:

    • Rebuilding existing power lines
    • Building new power lines
    • Upgrading substations

    The study area includes Troy, Stafford and Wilmington townships in DeKalb County. The improvements under consideration would increase electric reliability for area customers and support economic development.
