USD 110M electric grid expansion underway in Charleston

USA, West Virginia: Appalachian Power is implementing a $110 million electric grid expansion project, spanning from Kanawha City to downtown Charleston.

The Charleston Area Improvements Project includes the expansion of a downtown substation, which is underway and is one of the two substations to be expanded within the project.

Also, the company is building an entirely new substation and a new segment of transmission line that will connect the new substation to the revamped substations.

Appalachian Power is expecting to complete the project in late 2019.
