The proposed Independence Energy Connection project is designed to create access to low-cost electricity for customers across the mid-Atlantic region and address reliability issues that were identified by the regional transmission organization that would affect customers in Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Transource’s portion of the work is expected to include approximately 29 miles of overhead electric transmission line and the construction of two new substations in Franklin and York Counties, PA and Washington County, MD.   

Transource is committed to using local contractors, workers and services, where possible on the Independence Energy Connection project. Project construction is expected to support 130 full-time jobs and inject approximately $40 million into the local economies. Start of construction will occur upon the receipt of necessary approvals, including from the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission and the Maryland Public Service Commission.

Transource has already begun to utilize local services and has entered into some initial project construction agreements (view press release here).
