BellefonteExtension Transmission Line Project

AEP Ohio representatives plan power grid upgrades into southern Ohio and northern Kentucky. The project involves rebuilding about 3 miles of power line and building 1 mile of new power line. The proposed upgrades improve electric reliability by replacing aging infrastructure and speeding recovery of service when outages occur.
