AEP Ohio representatives plan power grid upgrades in northern Vinton County. The project involves building just under 2 miles of 138-kilovolt transmission line and a switch to isolate equipment from the power grid. Upgrades improve power grid functionality and operation.
Early 2021: Company representatives announced the proposed final line route for the new transmission line. Landowners can expect communications by a right-of-way agent to discuss property impacts.

Structure type varies depending on location and engineering design. Company engineers strive to limit the impact of the line on its surroundings while maintaining a buildable design.
Structure Height Range: 60-100 feet
Right-of-Way Width: Approximately 100 feet
