Maud to Weleetka Transmission Improvements

    AEP Oklahoma Transmission Company, an affiliate of Public Service Company of Oklahoma (PSO), is rebuilding approximately 50 miles of 138-kilovolt (kV) transmission line from a PSO substation south of Weleetka to an Oklahoma Gas and Electric (OG&E) substation west of Maud.

    The rebuild project will involve removing existing transmission facilities and replacing them with steel structures and new wire. These upgrades are necessary to ensure continued reliable power delivery to the area. The project is expected to be completed by late 2018.

    Project Updates

    More than 28 miles of the line have been rebuilt and placed in-service. The remaining 22 miles of the project are expected to be constructed later this year and expect to be completed by the end of 2018.

    Purpose and Need

    Local field personnel identified the need to bring the line up to current standards to ensure continued reliability of the local transmission system.
