Interested in transmission services in the West?

On behalf of TransWest Express Transmission Project — a new transmission path from south-central Wyoming to southern Nevada — Western is seeking interest from any entity or entities interested in long-term firm transmission service to deliver generation over the new line.

The TWE Project is proposed as a 725-mile, 3,000 megawatt, 600-kilovolt, direct-current transmission system with terminals in Wyoming and Nevada. Western anticipates it will be able to make about 250 megawatts of transmission capacity available from Carbon County, Wyo., to the Clark County, Nev.

Western published a Request for Statements of Interest in the Oct. 18 Federal Register seeking responses from entities interested in transmission service. Responses to the SOI are due no later than 4 p.m., MST, Dec. 2, 2010.
