17-0638-EL-BTX: AEP Ginger Switch-Vigo (Liberty) 138 kV Transmission Line Project
Case Number: 17-0638-EL-BTX
Project: Ginger Switch-Vigo (Liberty) 138 kV Transmission Line Project
Applicant: AEP Ohio Transco
Location: Ross County
AEP Ohio Transco proposes to rebuild a portion of the existing Berlin-Ross 69 kilovolt (kV) line as a 138 kV transmission line connecting the Ginger Switch to the Vigo Substation in Ross County. The project is approximately 7 miles long and would run through Springfield, Liberty, and Jefferson townships. AEP Ohio Transco anticipates building the new transmission line using several structure types, including steel H-frame and monopoles. AEP Ohio Transco estimates that the project would cost approximately $10 million. This project is part of AEP Ohio Transco's Ross-Jackson Area Improvements Project to improve the reliability of the electric transmission grid in Ross and Jackson counties by updating aging infrastructure to improve its condition and address performance issues.
