Mid-Atlantic Interstate Transmission, LLC., a FirstEnergy Company (MAIT), will hold an Open House public informational meeting to discuss its Shawnee-Walker 69 kV Transmission Line Project. MAIT has completed an evaluation of the existing electrical transmission system in Monroe and Pike counties and identified a need to construct the new Shawnee-Walker 69 kV Transmission Line. The approximately 30-mile line will provide a new transmission source extending from the existing Shawnee Substation in East Stroudsburg to the existing Walker Substation in Dingman Township. The new transmission line will enhance system capacity, reduce overloading conditions and mitigate reliability concerns on the existing distribution systems. After the events of Winter Storm Riley and Winter Storm Quinn in 2018, which left tens of thousands of Met-Ed customers without power in Pike and Monroe counties for an extended period, FirstEnergy identified a need for enhanced transmission service in the area, among other commitments, which is aligned with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission’s 2019 recommendations following the storms.
The project will enhance operational flexibility and will be able to provide electric service from both the north and south, which will aid restoration efforts if a portion of the transmission line becomes damaged or requires maintenance. The project will also provide additional capacity to accommodate future load growth.
MAIT will host this public informational meeting on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Delaware Township Office Building 116 Wilson Hill Road, Dingmans Ferry, PA 18328. The purpose of this public informational meeting is to provide members of the community with information and answer questions concerning the Project.
Attendees to the Open House will have the opportunity to learn more about the project and have the opportunity to speak to company representatives. The Open House will not include a formal presentation. Interested parties are invited to visit the event any time between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., as convenient.
For those that cannot attend in-person, MAIT has prepared a virtual public meeting that provides information on the Project. The virtual platform, which has been available since July 2022, contains the same information that will be available at the in-person meeting, including an interactive map that can be used to locate specific properties and the relationship to the project. This virtual public meeting includes instructions on how to contact MAIT with questions, concerns or to schedule a meeting.
