AES Ohio is proposing the construction of the Creekside 138 kilovolt (kV) transmission line.

Located both within the City of Sidney and Clinton Township, Shelby County, Ohio, the Project will consist of installing a new one-mile, new double circuit 138kV transmission line, tapping the Millcreek-Eldean 138kV line and terminating into a new distribution substation, named Creekside Substation. The transmission line will be installed west of Fair and Infirmary Roads, north of Schenk Road, near the intersection of Interstate 75 and Fair Road. The proposed project, in combination with other area improvements, will support increased load growth in the Sidney areas.
