PPL Electric has submitted an application to the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) for approval for a new 115 kV transmission line between the Williams Grove substation in Upper Allen Township and the Allen substation in Monroe Township.  PPL is proposing this new transmission line to resolve voltage magnitude and voltage drop violations for multiple N-1-1 contingencies, which violates Mid-Atlantic Interstate Transmission’s Transmission Owner Criteria and North American Electric Reliability Corporation Standard TPL-001-4.

Subject to PUC approval, the project is scheduled to start construction in Fall 2025 with the high-voltage transmission line to meet an in-service date of Spring 2026.  Construction on the associated substations is scheduled to begin in Fall 2024.

A copy of PPL’s Application to the PUC is available for public review at the Township building during normal business hours.  You may also view the application at Monroe Township, 1220 Boiling Springs Road, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055 during normal business hours.
