How long does it take to complete the planning and approval process for this project?

The planning and approval process of a project like this typically takes 12-18 months to complete. AEPCO has been working through the planning process in 2021 and 2022. A proposed route was selected in March 2022. We are now in the process of applying for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility (CEC) with the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) for a transmission line route corridor. Public hearings for the CEC are scheduled for June 6-10, 2022. The Project is expected to be approved in June 2022.
