Transmission Line Projects Pending Throughout Ohio

Attorneys & Professionals

There are a number of applications for proposed electric transmission line projects throughout Ohio pending before the Ohio Power Siting Board. For example, there are several proposed transmission line projects in the following counties: Belmont, Harrison, Monroe, Noble, and Washington. For the proposed projects, the transmission line companies will be looking to acquire property rights in private property. Landowners should be prepared to address the scope and necessity of any proposed acquisition and whether, and to what extent, eminent domain may be used to acquire the property rights.
