APS power line project open house June 5 at VOCA Clubhouse at 4:30pm at on this topic. APS will be sharing the power line project, answering questions and asking for public input
Project Need – Connect the Oak Creek Substation to the McGuireville Substation. Ensure reliability for customers throughout the Oak Creek and McGuireville area.
The information snippets below and additional information can be found here –
“The purpose of this project is to increase the reliability in the area by connecting the McGuireville Substation (located near Cornville Road and Restoration Loop) and the Oak Creek Substation (near Highway 179 and Jacks Canyon Road) with a new 69kV sub-transmission line. This will minimize the loss of the ability to serve customers in the Oak Creek area, McGuireville, and Cornville in the event of outages on either the existing Verde to Capital Butte 69kV line, and/or the Quail Springs to McGuireville 69kV line.
An important component of this siting process is to receive input from residents, tenants, property owners, and businesses within the study area. Members of the public and all interested parties are invited to join APS for an open house on on June 5th at 4:30pm at the VOCA Club House to learn about the purpose and need for the project, the project siting process, the development of preliminary route alternatives, and to ask questions and provide input.”
