Ohio-based utility Toledo Edison, a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp., will soon complete construction of a new $12 million high-voltage transmission substation in Fulton County. Toledo says the substation is expected to be in operation by the end of the year.

According to the utility, the new substation will be supplied by a nearby existing 345 kV transmission line and will reinforce the existing 138 kV transmission line in the western part of its northwestern Ohio service area to help maintain reliable service.

Toledo notes the substation will also provide additional voltage support to five substations on its system, as well as five customer substations at large industrial operations in the area. Completion of the Fulton Substation is part of a planned $23 million in system upgrades in Toledo Edison's service area during 2013.
