SWEPCO’s Proposed 345 KV Transmission Line Could Have a Big Impact on Property Owners.
June 28, 2013
Southwestern Electric Power Company (SWEPCO) submitted an application to the Arkansas Public Service Commission (APSC) on April 3, 2013 for a new 345 kilovolt transmission line from SWEPCO’s Shipe Road Station in Benton County, Arkansas to the proposed Kings River Station in Carroll County, Arkansas. The application listed six (6) possible routes for the proposed transmission line, but SWEPCO hopes to use Route 33. Click here for a PDF copy of SWEPCO's application with the APSC (map on last page) or view the proposed route on Google Maps by clicking here. SWEPCO stated in the application that the transmission line is needed to meet the additional transmission capacity demands of the growing North Arkansas and South Missouri areas. This will be a very large project with the total estimated cost at $116,718,121.00.
With such a large utility project in the works many landowners may soon be forced to part with their land. Because there are no existing transmission rights-of-way which can be utilized for the proposed line, SWEPCO will use its eminent domain authority to take private property for the project.
