AEP subsidiary seeks OK to build line in southern West Virginia

Posted:

CHARLESTON (AP) -- An American Electric Power subsidiary is asking state regulators to approve a transmission line that the company wants to build in Boone and Raleigh counties.

AEP West Virginia Transmission Company, Inc. filed an application for the Bim Tap Project on Tuesday with the West Virginia Public Service Commission.

The company's filing says the proposed 5.5-mile 138-kilovolt line would replace an existing line located on property where Independence Coal Company has mining operations. Independence has asked the company to move the line because it plans to conduct operations in the immediate vicinity.

The new line would be located primarily on reclaimed and previously mined land.

The project would cost about $6.6 million.
