Great River Energy, wholesale electric power supplier to Minnesota Valley Electric Cooperative, will be building a new 115-kV, double-circuit transmission line in Carver County to power a new distribution substation being built by Minnesota Valley Electric Cooperative.

The substation will be located within Laketown Township at the northwest corner of the intersection of Carver County Road 10 and Laketown Road. Great River Energy is currently reviewing three potential routes for the new transmission line in Laketown and Dalhgren Townships that are 3 to 5 miles long. Great River Energy will apply for a route permit from the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.”

Interested property owners and community members are welcome to attend an open house on Tuesday, Jan. 23, to learn more about the project.
