West Batesville to North Oakland

The West Batesville to North Oakland project involves 20 miles of single-circuit, 161-kV line and three to eight miles of double-circuit 161-kV line that will address reliability issues in Charleston, MS, region. The new lines would tie into the Batesville to West Batesville line from a new West Charleston. From the West Charleston substation, the line would then run northeast to the North Oakland substation. The project is expected to be completed by 2020.
