New Electric Line Thru PA Anticipates Marcellus-Fired Plants

PPL Electric Utilities Corporation announced yesterday that they plan to build a major new electric power line that will run 725 miles from western and north/central Pennsylvania to New York, New Jersey and Maryland. The exact route for the new 500-kilovolt line has not yet been determined, but if approved, PPL would begin construction in 2017 and complete construction by 2025. PPL says it will create a boatload of new jobs and cost between $4 and $6 billion to complete. Wait. What does this have to do with Marcellus drilling? Glad you asked…
