AEP Ohio representatives plan power grid upgrades to improve electric reliability for customers in Holmes, Knox and Ashland counties.
The Stillwell-Jelloway-Loudonville Transmission Line Project involves:
Company representatives plan to build the power line in an approximate 60-80 foot wide right-of-way corridor and plan to acquire new easements to ensure the safe construction, operation and maintenance of the line. Crews expect to begin building the line fall 2024 and continue through fall 2026.
Summer 2023: The final line route was announced in September 2022. Crews expect to begin construction next fall.
February 2022: AEP Ohio representatives invite the community to attend an in-person open house from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 23, at Danville Elementary and Junior High School gymnasium located at 205 West Rambo Street in Danville. You can view detailed maps and talk with team members about the proposed study segments. There is no formal presentation, so you can arrive at any time during the event.
At AEP Ohio, safety is our first priority. Due to COVID-19, AEP Ohio staff members plan to wear face coverings and practice social distancing at the open house to ensure safety for you and our staff. We encourage attendees to wear face coverings at the open house per the recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.
The project involves the use of steel H-frame and single poles.
*Exact structure, height, and right-of-way requirements may vary.
