Alton Area Improvements

    AEP Ohio representatives plan to improve the electric transmission grid by rebuilding about .5 miles of 69-kilovolt (kV) power line and building about 1.25 miles of new 69 kV line. Upgrades reduce the likelihood of outages by replacing an aging infrastructure and improve reliability.
