The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is asking the public for input about upgrades to its transmission system that would provide power for growing load in the Brooksville and surrounding area and increase power reliability for the area.
TVA is proposing to build about 6.5 mi of transmission line from the Weyerhaeuser-South Macon 161-kV Transmission Line and connect to a substation that 4-County Electric Power Association is planning to build about 7 mi east of Brooksville.
The lines would be built on steel pole structures on a 100-ft right of way. Several alternate line routes are under consideration.
Public input is encouraged and began with an open house on Nov. 13. More information is available.
