16-0535-EL-BTX: AEP Yager-Desert Road 138 kV Transmission Line Rebuild Project

Case number: 16-0535-EL-BTX 
Project: Yager-Desert Road 138 kV Transmission Line Rebuild Project
Company: AEP Ohio Transmission Company
Location: Harrison County
Status: Approved

The Yager-Desert Road 138 kV Transmission Line Rebuild Project is part of the multi-phase Eastern Ohio Tri-County Improvements designed to create a 138 kV loop in eastern Ohio to reduce electric outages in the region and provide the electrical capacity for future business expansion. The project involves rebuilding approximately seven miles of the Dennison-Scio 69 kV transmission line. The Yager-Desert Road line located in Harrison County connects the Yager Substation, currently under construction, to the existing Desert Road Substation. Operated at 69 kV, but built to 138 kV specifications, the new transmission line would allow for future load growth in the area.
