Delaware County has experienced electric demand growth over the last several years and the electric demand is projected to grow. This project will help ensure the continued reliability of the electric distribution system, which is vital to AEP Ohio’s current customers as well as supporting economic development in the area.
The company plans to construct the new Lincoln-Berrywood 69-kilovolt (kV) transmission line in Berlin, Brown, Delaware and Troy townships. The new transmission line will be about 17 miles long. This project will modernize the transmission and distribution electric grid in Delaware and the surrounding area.
AEP Ohio projects the Lincoln-Berrywood line will be an approximate $25 million investment by the company.
