Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) is developing plans to strengthen the transmission system in northeastern Indiana. The proposed improvements in Jay County would increase reliability, lessen power outages, and speed recovery of service when outages occur. I&M is asking for input from the community and landowners on the proposed study segments that will help determine the line route.
Summer 2019: Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) announces the Jay County Area Improvements project.
A public Open House will be held to gather input from local residents. Representatives from I&M will be available to discuss specific aspects of the project and to answer questions residents may have. Feedback from the community will be gathered from this event and used to help determine the final proposed line route. The Open House will be informal, and can be attended at any time during the evening and is scheduled for Thursday, July 25, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Jay Community Center East Gym, 115 East Water St., Portland.
I&M will build the line with steel monopole structures averaging 90-120 ft. Structures will be placed within a 100-foot right-of-way. I&M is committed to meeting the energy needs of customers while protecting the environment and natural beauty of the region.
