Greentown-Reynolds Electric System Improvement Project

The Reynolds to Greentown Electric System Improvement Project is designated as Multi-Value Project (MVP) No. 14 by the Midwest ISO MTEP Report.  The project is a joint venture between Pioneer Transmission and Northern Indiana Public Service Company.  Pioneer is a joint venture between AEP (American Electric Power) and Duke Energy.  The 70 mile 765-kV line will run between the Reynolds substation to AEP’s Greentown substation through Indiana, north of the Lafayette area. A 765/345 kV transformer/substation will also be installed at the Reynolds substation. The project will improve reliability and increase the transfer capability for lower cost energy exchange in the region.  Construction began in May 2016, with an estimated energize date of 2018.  The project is estimated to cost $347m.  The implementation of typical steel lattice poles with a right of way of 200 feet is planned.
