UPDATE: New Location for Meeting as AEP Ohio Evaluates the Feasibility of New Electric Transmission Routes in Delaware and Licking Counties

April 20, 2023

AEP Ohio is hosting two open houses to help identify routes for potential power lines needed to meet the power demand in Delaware and Licking counties. A scheduling conflict has led to a change of venue for the previously announced May 2 meeting, which will now be held at Northridge High School in Johnstown.

Company officials are hosting two in-person open houses and a virtual open house and invite community members and landowners to learn more and share input, particularly on possible power line routes options. The same information will be available at each open house.

Date: Tuesday, May 2                                               OR                       Date: Wednesday, May 3

Time: 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.                                                                 Time: 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Location: Northridge High School                                                       Location: Sunbury Methodist Church

6066 Johnstown-Utica Road in Johnstown                                       100 West Cherry Street in Sunbury

As new energy-intensive businesses locate to the area, additions to the power grid are needed to connect customers and maintain reliability. The first electrical upgrade the company is exploring involves constructing a new 345-kilovolt transmission line between Vassell Substation near Sunbury and new electric facilities near Green Chapel Road in New Albany.

While company officials are evaluating a potential path for the new power line, they will also collect information to identify a separate power line corridor to support future electric demand. The study area for the prospective lines includes Monroe, Jersey and Hartford townships in Licking County, Berkshire, Harlem and Trenton townships in Delaware County, Plain Township in Franklin County, along with parts of New Albany and Johnstown.

The events do not include a formal presentation, so attendees can arrive at any time to review area maps and talk with company representatives. Information gathered during the open houses helps determine a proposed solution, including any new power line routes.
