PPL Electric Utilities is planning a 95-mile transmission line from PPL’s Lackawanna Substation in Blakely, Pa., to Con Edison’s Ramapo Substation in Ramapo, N.Y.
The line would provide an important addition to the nation’s transmission infrastructure and would have significant benefits for consumers.
The cost of this 345-kilovolt line is currently estimated at $500 million to $600 million. The project is in the planning stages, and has a targeted in-service date of 2023.
PPL companies have nearly 100 years of experience in planning, designing, building and operating electric transmission lines. We have a long track record of successfully siting and obtaining approval for these projects.
