"Foxconn-driven power lines subject of public meetings Tuesday"

Two public “scoping” sessions will be conducted Tuesday by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission in response to plans to build a high-voltage electric transmission line to the site of the Foxconn Technology Group factories and campus in Mount Pleasant.

American Transmission Co. has proposed the construction of a 14-mile, 345-kilovolt transmission line, a new 345/138-kV substation and new underground 138-kV lines to connect a substation to a Foxconn-owned substation near the planned $10 billion manufacturing plant.

The public sessions will be held at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. in the State of Wisconsin offices in Sturtevant, 9531 Rayne Road. The sessions will be held in an open house format, and anyone with comments or concerns is encouraged to attend. At the sessions, PSC staff will explain the regulatory review process.

Comments will be taken on the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement, which is currently being drafted by the PSC and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
