TVA asks for comments on proposed transmission project

To continue providing reliable
power to the Byrdstown
area, TVA is proposing improvements
to its transmission
system.
Public input on the proposed
improvements is encouraged,
beginning with an
open house in Albany, Ky., on
July 16.
Improvements include a
proposed new Volunteer Energy
Cooperative substation
near Byrdstown and 15 to 18
miles of TVA 161-kilovolt
transmission line. The proposed
new line would extend
from TVA’s existing
Huntsville-Wolf Creek 161-kV
line to the new Byrdstown
substation, located southeast
of Byrdstown.
Several alternative routes,
a network of 13 possible line
segments and four locations to
connect to the existing line are
being considered. TVA will
present the alternatives at an
open house to be held from 3-7
p.m. CDT at the Clinton
County Middle School Gymnasium,
169 Middle School Road,
in Albany. Detailed maps
showing the network of alternative
routes for the proposed
power line will be available,
and TVA staff will be on hand
to answer questions, discuss
potential concerns and receive
comments on the proposals. A
map is available at
www.tva.gov/power/projects.

or to submit comments, contact
