Wabash Valley Power Alliance (WVPA), a wholesale electric supplier, and Citizen’s Electric Co-Op are planning a new transmission line in Ste Genevieve County. The Salem Bulk-Valley View Project will have a 69 kV transmission powerline that connects the Salem Bulk Substation to the Valley View Substation north of Bloomsdale. Construction is planned for 2023 with service starting in 2024.
The project call for WVPA to construct a new transmission line to connect the Salem Bulk Substation east of Farmington to the Valley View Substation north of Bloomsdale. This project may will likely require the acquisition of easement right-of-way from private property owners along the project route.
