AEP Ohio representatives plan power grid upgrades to improve electric reliability for customers in Stark County. The Sunnyside-Torrey Transmission Line Rebuild Project involves updating about 4 miles of power line and two substations. Plans call for rebuilding the power line in the existing right-of-way, although company representatives might need to acquire new or supplement current property easements to ensure the safe construction, operation and maintenance of the line.
AEP Ohio representatives announced the proposed Sunnyside-Torrey Transmission Line Rebuild Project in early 2021.
