AEP Texas plans to strengthen the local transmission system in Kinney and Maverick counties by building a 138-kilovolt electric transmission line. The new power line provides an additional power delivery source to the region and increases the reliability of electric service to the surrounding areas.
AEP Texas filed a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity application with the Public Utility Commission of Texas on February 28, 2020. AEP Texas expects to receive a decision on the project and final route determination by Spring 2021.
AEP Texas hosted two open houses in July 2018 to answer questions about the project and to introduce possible routing options for the power line. Visitors offered feedback, viewed maps and discussed the project with project team members.
Following review of the public input and additional route link analysis, AEP Texas filed a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN) application with the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) on February 28, 2020. The PUCT requires the filing of a CCN application to ask for approval of the project and to determine a final route for the Brackettville - Escondido Transmission Line Project. AEP Texas expects to receive a decision on the project and final line route determination from the PUCT by Spring 2021.
