Lott 138-kV Transmission Line Project

    AEP Ohio representatives plan power grid upgrades in Delaware County. The project involves building about 4 miles of 138-kilovolt transmission line and a substation. These improvements strengthen the local power grid by reducing the likelihood of power outages and speeding recovery of service when outages occur.
