Upgraded 22 miles of transmission line between the Whitewater and Mukwonago substations.
Constructed six miles of new 69-kilovolt underground transmission line to connect the West Towne Substation and Fitchburg Substation to the new, MGE-built Tokay Substation.
Added a second 345-kilovolt line to an existing line between southern Rock County and northern Illinois.
Built new 13-mile, 115-kilovolt transmission line between Monico and Crandon, Wis.
T-20 Phase 2 (Weston-Rocky Run)
Replaced the remaining structures and insulators, added new conductors from Weston-Northpoint and installed optical ground wire (OPGW) from Weston-Rocky Run.
Replaced horizontal post insulators (the ceramic piece that holds the wire to the structure and opposes the flow of electric current) on approximately 38 wood poles which were part of the 138-kilovolt line constructed in the 1980s.
Rebuilt 19 miles of 138-kilovolt transmission line from the Saukville Substation to the St. Lawrence Substation in Washington County.
Increased capacity of 33 miles of existing transmission lines, upgraded six substations and built three new substations in cooperation with Reedsburg Utility and Wisconsin Power & Light.
