ATC and Rock Energy Cooperative to discuss preliminary routes for new power line

Open house will be Aug. 26 at The Gathering Place in Milton

PEWAUKEE, Wis. – Representatives from American Transmission Co. and Rock Energy Cooperative will be on hand to discuss preliminary route options for a new power line to serve the Milton area.

“The proposed transmission line is needed to serve a growing need for reliable electric service in the area and to support continued growth of the Milton Industrial Park,” says Denny Schultz, representative of Rock Energy Cooperative. “The line will connect Rock Energy’s planned Red Hawk Substation near Milton Harmony Townline Road and County Highway M to the transmission grid that serves the area.”

ATC mailed invitations to potentially affected landowners and businesses and is conducting the open house to solicit local feedback on siting the new line.

“Participation by Milton-area citizens in this process will be key in helping to identify the best solution,” explains Jon Callaway, local relations representative for ATC.

Residents are invited to drop in at the open house on Wednesday, Aug. 26, between 4 and 7 p.m. at The Gathering Place, 715 Campus St., Milton. No formal presentation is planned.
