Independence Energy Connection

The Independence Energy Connection project involves both a west and east segment. The west segment involves a new 230-kV transmission line between a new Rice substation and the existing Ringgold substation. The east segment involves a 230-kV transmission line between the new Furnace Run substation and existing Conastone substation. Both segments will run through the Pennsylvania and Maryland border and will help alleviate electrical gridlock problems in the their corresponding regions. Transource Energy expects to complete the line by 2020.
