Monroe, Tennessee - Provide 161-kV Delivery Point
Overton County, Tennessee
On December 22, 2008, TVA issued a final environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact for its proposal to construct and operate a transmission line tap connection to Upper Cumberland Electric Membership Corporation’s (UCEMC) planned substation in Monroe, Tennessee. The proposed 5.5-mile 161- kilovolt (kV) transmission line in Overton County would connect the UCEMC substation to TVA’s existing Huntsville-Livingston 161-kV Transmission Line. Approximately 3.3 miles of the transmission line would be built on new right-of-way (ROW) 100 feet in width, and 2.2 miles would be built parallel to TVA’s existing Livingston-Byrdstown 69-kV Transmission Line on new ROW 87.5 feet in width.
The proposed line is designed to supply power for the new UCEMC substation that is needed to maintain reliable electric service, addressing both the current capacity and voltage issues. The new substation also addresses the growth of electrical load demand in the Livingston and Dale Hollow Lake areas.
