Ameren Illinois Holding Public Hearings on Grid Transformation Program

A series of public hearings is being held this week across Illinois by Ameren Illinois about their new Grid Transformation Program.


The program includes approximately 380 miles of new or upgraded transmission lines across the region, with nearly 85% rebuilt along existing corridors. The program also includes building three new substations and upgrades to several existing substations. Program manager Sam Morris says that the project is all a part of MISO's portfolio to upgrade transmission capacity.



There will be three opportunities this week for the public to see the project first hand. 


The first is Tuesday in Quincy at The Ambiance, located at 5225 Kochs Lane from 11AM-1PM and again from 5-7PM. 


Subsequent meetings will be held at the same times in Mt. Sterling, at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Wednesday and in Meredosia at the American Legion on Thursday.
