Electric company says improvements spurred on by natural gas extraction

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- American Electric Power has announced it will make a $66 million investment in transmission infrastructure to upgrade electrical delivery service in Carroll, Tuscarawas and Harrison counties.

The project includes a new substation in northwest Harrison County, called the Yager Substation, and upgrades for transmission lines.

AEP Ohio will reportedly construct a new, 138-kilovolt transmission line of about five miles that will run between northwest Harrison County and the Leesville area of southwest Carroll County. AEP also reportedly plans to rebuild about 15 miles of a transmission line between the Dennison and Scio areas, roughly doubling the line capacity.

AEP officials say the shale natural gas industry, a large electricity consumer, is the main driver of the upgrade.

AEP will hold an open house to discuss the plans from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on April 28 in Conotton Valley High School on Cumberland Road in Bowerston.
