United States : TVA Seeks Comments on Proposed Miss. Transmission Project.
The Tennessee Valley Authority is asking for public input about transmission system upgrades in central Mississippi that would increase power reliability for the area and enhance overall reliability of the TVA system.
TVA is proposing to build about 55 miles of transmission line from its Red Hills Substation to Central Electric Power Association s upgraded Kosciusko Substation, and then to the Leake-Singleton 161-kilovolt transmission line. This would create a new Red Hills-Leake transmission line that would power three local substations, improve reliability and resolve overload issues.
The lines would be built on steel pole structures on a 100-foot right of way. Several alternate line routes are being considered with some using existing right of way.
Public input is encouraged, beginning with two open houses from 3-7 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 8, at the Choctaw County Community Center, 898 College St., in Ackerman, and on Tuesday, Sept. 9, at the Attala County Coliseum, 550 Highway 12 East, in Kosciusko.
