First PATH public hearings to be held in Jefferson County

September 14, 2009

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The state Public Service Commission says it will hold 11 public hearings on a proposal to build a 756-kilovolt power line across West Virginia to Maryland.

The PSC announced Friday that the first hearings will be held in Shepherdstown, W.Va., on Sept. 22 and 23.

Other West Virginia hearings are planned for Sept. 28 in Flatwoods, Oct. 2 in Charleston, Oct. 13 at Canaan Valley State Park near Davis and Oct. 22 in Buckhannon.

Allegheny Energy and American Electric Power propose to build the Potomac-Appalachian Transmission Highline, or PATH, from AEP's John Amos plant in Putnam County across parts of northern Virginia and end at a substation near Kemptown, Md.

The project is being opposed by individuals and government agencies along the proposed route.
