Maps and visuals

The route for the 600 kilovolt direct-current transmission line is approximately 730 miles in length, with a typical right-of-way width of 250 feet. Two substation/converter stations, approximately 200 acres in size, will be constructed at each terminating point. The ROW application also provides for the TWE Project to be configured to allow for a future interconnection with the IPP transmission system near Delta, Utah.

"A robust transmission grid provides consumers with access to lower-cost electricity. On a severely constrained transmission grid… consumers are forced to rely on local power plants even though plants in other regions can produce power more efficiently and at lower cost."
