Delmarva Power Project to Benefit Worcester County

Delmarva Power will hold a community meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at Ocean City Volunteer Fire Company – Station 5 at 10124 Keyser Point Road to provide details on its plan to rebuild a more than 50 year old electric transmission line between Berlin and Ocean City.

The approximately $43 million project to rebuild the existing nine-mile, 69,000-volt transmission line is scheduled to begin in October of this year and is intended to increase electric system capacity to handle customer load growth and improve overall area electric reliability.

The project involves the replacement of approximately 150, 45- to 60-foot tall wooden poles with 80- to 90-foot tall steel poles that are more durable, require less maintenance and can withstand hurricane force winds of 120 miles per hour.
