Friendship - Portsmouth Transmission Line

    The Friendship - Portsmouth Transmission Line Project involves building about 8 miles of 69-kilovolt (kV) transmission line, rebuilding about 14 miles of 69-kV line and upgrading local substations. This project is located near Friendship, Portsmouth, and Rosemount. The project replaces an aging transmission line to improve electric reliability by decreasing the number of outages and shortening the duration if an outage should occur.
