Xcel Energy officials will hold an informal Open House Monday, Dec. 8, from 3-7 p.m. at the Somerset Village Hall.

The purpose of the gathering is to provide information about a proposed electric transmission line from the Town of Stanton to Somerset. The line may require Xcel to purchase additional right-of-way from property owners along a a County Road C corridor.

Xcel is planning to install a new substation 1.5 miles norh of New Richmond near 150th Street. Another substation is planned in the Town of Somerset near 205th Avenue. A new 69kV line will connect the two substations.

Continued growth in the Somerset and New Richmond areas have prompted Xcel to seek the additional substations and powerlines.
