TransWest Express Transmission Project
The TransWest Express Transmission Project is a proposed extra high voltage, direct current overhead transmission line that would run about 728 miles from south-central Wyoming, crossing Colorado and Utah, to the Marketplace Hub about 25 miles south of Las Vegas, Nevada. This Project would include two AC/DC converter stations, about 200 acres in size at each terminating point, a fiber optic network communications system, and two ground electrode facilities, each about 600 acres in size. When completed, this Project would have the capacity to transmit about 3,000 megawatts of electricity generated primarily from renewable resources at planned facilities in Wyoming.
The Bureau of Land Management, Wyoming State Office and Western are co-lead agencies for the preparation of the environmental impact statement.Project documents
