Wildwood Commerce Transmission Project

    Appalachian Power plans to increase economic growth in southwestern Virginia by providing power to Wildwood Commerce Park (WCP). The Wildwood Commerce Transmission Project consists of building about 3 miles of transmission line and a substation inside the Park.

    The proposed transmission line will tap off Appalachian Power’s existing Jacksons Ferry – Pipers Gap transmission line in northern Carroll County. The line will travel southwest across Poplar Camp and Wildcat roads to an endpoint at the WCP, located east of Interstate 77 off Stuart Drive.

    Construction is expected to last approximately 12 months.

    Project Update

Appalachian Power held an informational open house to introduce the study segments and receive public input, from the community, in November of 2016. The project has been approved by the county.
