Wed May 08, 2019 - West Edition #10 Associated Press
The transmission lines would connect from a terminal outside Rawlins and run into northwest Colorado and Utah, ending at another terminal near Las Vegas.
SARATOGA, Wyo. (AP) Wyoming regulators have approved construction of transmission lines to connect energy generated from wind farms in southern Wyoming to southwestern states.
The state Industrial Siting Council voted unanimously April 19 during its meeting in Saratoga to approve the permit application by TransWest Express to construct and operate a 730-mile high-voltage transmission system.
TransWest CEO Bill Miller said the decision means that federal and state permitting for the project is now complete.
Miller said the company anticipates beginning construction next year.
The lines would connect from a terminal outside Rawlins and run into northwest Colorado and Utah, ending at another terminal near Las Vegas.
