Appalachian Power representatives plan to upgrade the local electric transmission grid in central Virginia. The Reusens - New London Transmission Line Rebuild Project involves upgrading approximately 12 miles of electric transmission line and upgrading a substation in the city of Lynchburg and Bedford County. Company representatives expect construction to begin in Summer 2022 and conclude by the end of 2023.
03/25/2021 - Company representatives have determined a proposed power line route to rebuild the line and plan to submit an application to the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) in April seeking approval for the upgrades. The project team plans to rebuild most of the line within our existing right-of-way, although right-of-way agents may need to supplement existing easements in some areas.
02/16/2021 - The project team is reviewing feedback to determine a proposed line route that minimizes impact to the community and environment. Appalachian Power representatives plan to submit an application to the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) in the coming months seeking approval for the upgrades. If the SCC accepts Appalachian Power’s application, property owners located along the proposed line route can expect another mailing explaining how to participate in the project approval process.
10/09/2020 - Appalachian Power representatives encourage landowners to submit their feedback about the project by November 20th.
