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.

ATC placed into service approximately 14 miles of new 138-kilovolt transmission line connecting a new substation located east of Horicon to an existing substation south of Neosho.

The electric transmission system that serves the communities of Beaver Dam, Hustisford, Horicon and central Dodge County will benefit from a more reliable system to serve the growing area. Previously, the electric system was operating at maximum capacity and could not accommodate growth in electric usage or maintain service in the event of an equipment failure.
