Electric Transmission Texas LLC (ETT) has filed an application with the Public Utility Commission of Texas to build a single-circuit, 138 kV transmission line in Nueces County.

ETT, a joint venture between American Electric Power and Berkshire Hathaway Energy subsidiaries, says the line would run from ETT's Barney Davis substation to AEP Texas Central Co.'s (TCC) Naval Base substation.

According to the company, the project is necessary to maintain transmission service reliability to Flour Bluff, portions of Corpus Christi, and the North Padre-Mustang Island area. Last year, the project was endorsed by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, which also called for TCC to install a new 138/69 kV autotransformer at the Naval Base substation.

ETT anticipates construction of the project to begin in April 2016, and the new transmission line will be energized by December 2016.Based on preliminary routing, the transmission project could total from 6.1 to 16.1 miles, and the approximate cost of the entire project is expected to range between $33.1 million and $50 million
