Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) is hosting a virtual open house for its Berrien County customers.
It’s for a closer look at the Benton Harbor-Fair Plain Transmission Line Rebuild Project, which aims to help reduce outage duration times and promote economic growth in Berrien County.
The project includes:
- Upgrading approximately seven miles of 34.5-kilovolt transmission line to 69-kilovolt standards.
- Rebuilding some sections of the high-voltage transmission line in I&M’s existing right-of-way and re-routing other sections.
- Upgrading wooden power poles to steel monopoles.
Construction on the year-long project is set to begin in the fall of 2022 and finish in the fall of 2023.
