Partner Profile: Path Allegheny, An Allegheny Energy Company

MACo is proud to welcome Path Allegheny, An Allegheny Energy Company as a gold-level partner of our Corporate Partner Program.

In 2007, the creation of the Potomac-Appalachian Transmission Highline (PATH) project, a high-voltage interstate transmission line, resulted from a joint venture between Allegheny Energy and American Electric Power (AEP).  Running from Putnam County, West Virginia to New Market, Maryland, the project consists of a 765-kilovolt transmission line to help avoid voltage problems and line overloads that can result in brownouts or blackouts.  The project is slated to be completed no later than June 1, 2015.

Benefits of the Project:

  • Helping to keep the lights on throughout the region;
  • Providing flexibility for scheduling outages for maintenance and upgrades of critical transmission infrastructure.

Information on project updates are available on PATH’s homepage.
