The improvements provide an additional power source, support economic development and increase electric service reliability.
The project was announced, and an open house was held, in the summer of 2018. As the development of the project continues, company representatives scheduled a second open house to provide project updates and discuss new potential routes for a section of the power line to help determine a final line route.
