Sharon Township - Vernon Township Transmission Line Project

    AEP Ohio and AEP Ohio Transmission Company, Inc. plan to upgrade their transmission facilities in northern Ohio to support an interconnection with an independent power provider.

    The Sharon Township - Vernon Township Transmission Line Project involves building approximately one-half mile of new 138-kilovolt (kV) transmission line and adding about 4 miles of new wires to existing steel lattice towers. Construction is expected to begin in early 2019 and complete summer 2019.
