    Indiana Michigan Power Is Powering the Next Reliability Enhancement in Southwest Michigan

    July 28, 2022 - Targeted News Service


      NILES, Indiana, July 28 -- Indiana Michigan Power, an American Electric Power company, issued the following news release:

      Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) plans to enhance the electric transmission network in Berrien and Cass Counties by rebuilding 8 miles of electric transmission or high-voltage lines in and around the Niles area.

      The FourFlag Transmission Line Project involves:

      * Rebuilding about 5 miles of 69-kilovolt (kV) power line between Pokagon Substation off Barron Lake Road and Lake Street Substation off Lake Street.

      * Rebuilding about 3 miles of power line from Lake Street Substation to FourFlag Substation off South 3rd Street.

      The existing power lines and wooden poles have been in operation since the 1950s and have reached an age where it needs to be replaced. Rebuilding this line improves operational performance, reduces maintenance frequency and strengthens the local electric transmission network in the Niles area.

      "The estimated $19 million investment into southwest Michigan will help ensure the safe and reliable delivery of electrical service to customers who call Berrien and Cass counties home," said Mona Livingston, I&M community affairs manager. "The upgrades will help I&M respond in the event of a power outage and reduce the likelihood of extended outages for customers, including during severe weather events."

      Construction is planned for fall 2023 and is expected to conclude in spring 2025.
