Public Encouraged to Provide Comments
MADISON – The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC) will hold public hearings in
Janesville on Wednesday, February 13 regarding an application from American Transmission
Company (ATC) to build a transmission line from Beloit to Christiana.
Citizens are invited to provide testimony on ATC’s request to build approximately 35 miles of
new 345 kilovolt transmission line to connect the Paddock Substation in the town of Beloit and
the Rockdale Substation in the town of Christiana. In its application for the line, ATC states that
the project would give local utilities improved access to lower cost power from other areas in the
region, as well as provide a more stable electric system.
Public comments on ATC’s application will be included in the record the Commission will
review to make a decision. The Commission has the authority to approve, deny or modify the
application. Citizens are encouraged to attend one of the hearings, which are scheduled for:
