Project Updates

10/4/23: Company representatives continue reviewing and exploring environmental data for the Kincaid-Pax Branch Transmission Line Project. The project team is adjusting the project schedule. Landowners along the proposed line route will receive a mailing with the updated timeline once it's finalized.

09/01/22: Directly-impacted landowners can expect to hear in the coming months from the right-of-way contractor representing Appalachian Power. The utility needs to acquire easements for an approximate 100- foot right-of-way. Easements are defined land rights that property owners grant the utility to allow for the safe construction, operation and maintenance of the power line. For any right-of-way questions, please contact Jay Deal at 304-237-8686.
