Van Reed 69-kV Transmission Project

Met-Ed, a FirstEnergy electric utility, has identified a need for a new substation and distribution line capacity that will require a 69-kilovolt (kV) transmission line near the Reading Airport in Berks County, Pennsylvania, to enhance service reliability for existing customers and support higher electrical demand associated with planned business expansion. Mid-Atlantic Interstate Transmission, LLC (MAIT), FirstEnergy’s transmission affiliate company, is proposing to build the Van Reed 69-kV Transmission Line to the new substation in Bern Township from an existing transmission line.
