Regulators wonÂ’t delay power line proceedings

VIRGINIA - Virginia regulators won't delay proceedings on the state's section of a multi-state power transmission line.

American Electric Power Co. and Allegheny Energy Inc. had asked to delay the review schedule for the application for the Virginia segment of the $2.

1 billion Potomac-Appalachian Transmission Highline. That's because they wanted to update the application with new projections on increased energy demands along the East Coast by 2015.

A hearing examiner with the State Corporation Commission denied the request earlier.

The proposed 275-mile, 765-kilovolt power line would run from AEP's John Amos plant in West Virginia, 31 miles across three counties in northern Virginia, to a substation near Kemptown, Maryland.
