Logan County Connector


Ameren Illinois is proposing to construct a new, approximately 7- to 9-mile, 138 kV transmission line and associated facilities to improve reliability for local customers in Lincoln and surrounding Logan County area. These communities are currently supported by two Ameren Illinois 138 kV transmission lines that protect and secure the energy system in Logan County. In the future, continuing to rely on these transmission sources in the event of a power outage could result in extended restoration times and community-wide impacts. As we continue to serve, support and invest in our communities, new projects—like the Logan County Connector—allow us to continue supporting future energy needs.
