AEP Ohio representatives plan power grid upgrades to improve electric reliability for AEP Ohio, Holmes-Wayne Electric Cooperative and Frontier Power Company customers in Holmes and Coshocton counties.
The Killbuck - South Coshocton Transmission Line Project involves:
Company representatives plan to build the power line in an approximate 60-foot right-of-way corridor and plan to acquire new or supplement existing easements to ensure the safe construction, operation and maintenance of the line. Crews expect to begin rebuilding the line fall 2023 and continue through fall 2025.
July 2022: Following review of community feedback, land use, constructability and environmental impact, company representatives determined proposed rebuild and re-route line routes for the project. Landowners along the proposed routes can expect to hear from O.R. Colan, who represents AEP Ohio as the right-of-way agent.
December 2021: A virtual open house took place in December 2021. Company representatives gathered input from local residents.
This project involves the use of single steel poles and steel H-frames.
