Dennison – Yager Transmission Line

    The Dennison – Yager Transmission Line involves rebuilding approximately 7 miles of 69-kV line. The line will be upgraded with steel poles and built to 138-kV standards, although it will continue to be operated at 69-kV. The line connects the Dennison Substation in Harrison County to a new Yager Substation, which is currently under construction in Tuscarawas County.

    These improvements are one part of the multi-phase Eastern Ohio Tri-County Improvements, an approximately $66 million investment designed to create a 138-kV loop in eastern Ohio that will reduce electric outages in the region and provide the capacity for future business expansion. The multi-phase project includes rebuilding approximately 20-miles of transmission line, adding 5-miles of new line and constructing a new Yager Substation.

    The Dennison – Yager transmission line is an approximately $15 million investment. It is necessary to ensure a reliable and adequate supply of energy is available for the area, which has seen a dramatic increase in economic development related to the shale gas industry.
