Banner Elk and Newland Transmission Line Clearance

MEC is currently having the TVA transmission line that travels between Newland and Banner Elk communities surveyed. The survey is being conducted so we can accurately begin cutting the right of ways along this line within the upcoming weeks. Trimming the trees and other vegetation is necessary to continue providing reliable service to you and we appreciate your cooperation.
