American Transmission Co. projects

Project website for a Wisconsin-based company that owns and operates the high-voltage electric transmission system that powers communities in portions of the Upper Midwest.

Project overview

The Paris-Albers Rebuild Project is a transmission line replacement project. Approximately 12.5 miles of 138-kV transmission lines in Kenosha County will be replaced to ensure safe and reliable electric transmission operations in the future.

The line runs from the Paris Substation in Paris, Wis., to the Albers Substation in the Kenosha, Wis. Additional details will be available on the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin’s website under Docket No. 137-CE-174.

Proposed work

The proposed work involves stringing new wires and replacing aging wood transmission poles with new wood and steel poles. No new right-of-way is needed and the new poles will be placed within a few feet of the existing poles.

This project was approved by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin in spring 2014. Construction will begin in September 2014 to meet an in-service date of spring 2015.
