A Vendor Meet and Greet event hosted by Transource Energy will be held on Thursday, February 13, in Chambersburg, PA, to solicit bids for the Independence Energy Connection project.
This overhead electric transmission line project was recommended by the regional transmission organization, PJM Interconnection, to create access to low-cost electricity for customers across the mid-Atlantic and also address reliability issues that would impact customers in Pennsylvania and Maryland.
The work will include approximately 29 miles of overhead electric transmission line and the construction of two 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 utilized local services and entered into some initial project construction agreements (view press release here).
