Shawnee-Walker 69 kV Transmission Line Reliability Project Notice

Received from First Energy:

Mid-Atlantic Interstate Transmission, LLC (MAIT), a FirstEnergy company, is planning to construct a new 69-kilovolt (kV) transmission line in Middle Smithfield Township, Monroe County and Lehman Township, Delaware Township and Dingman Township, Pike County, Pennsylvania. This project is needed to help alleviate capacity limitations, overloading conditions and reliability concerns on the electric distribution systems in Monroe and Pike Counties. The new transmission source will also greatly improve operational flexibility on the existing electric system by reducing loading on the current system, as well as providing a direct transmission source to the existing substations in the area and help to reduce outages. The Project will also help to improve reliability for the current customers in the area and ensure that Met-Ed has the capacity available to provide service to future customers as well.

Please see the attached document for additional information:
