Roselms - KalidaArea Improvements Project

The Roselms-Kalida Area Improvements Project involves rebuilding about 30 miles of power line and building about 10 miles of power line.

Company representatives plan to update, supplement and acquire new easements where necessary. Improvements reduce the likelihood of power outages and speed recovery of service when outages occur.

Project Updates

Summer 2021: After reviewing input from landowners, company representatives announced final line route plans for the new power line. Right-of-way agents are discussing plans with landowners.
