MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. - A utility company is asking state regulators to approve a $140 million project to supply electricity to the massive Foxconn manufacturing complex in southeastern Wisconsin.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that American Transmission Co. says the massive plant is expected to draw six times more power than the next-largest factory in the state. ATC wants to build a new substation east of the facility and connect it with high-voltage power lines.
The company plans to file an application with the state Public Service Commission in February and seek a decision on the project by August.
ATC says that if the project is approved, construction would begin late next year.
ATC says the cost of the project would be spread among about 5 million residential electric customers over 40 years.
