The need for improvements to the transmission system north of Wooster is essential to ensure an adequate supply of electricity is available for the area's industrial, commercial, and residential customers. Improvements reconfigure the design of the electric system by creating a loop. This loop adds redundancy, reducing power outages in the area and speeding recovery of service when outages occur.
Project components include:
