- Expanded substation facilities at the North Appleton site on French Road in the Town of Freedom, Outagamie County,
- A new 345-kV line and a new 138-kV line between North Appleton and the Morgan Substation in Oconto County.

ATC has a practice of engaging the public and other interested stakeholder in its proposed transmission line projects as a way to identify possible routes far in advance of filing a regulatory application. ATC began engaging the public through open houses in May 2012.
