TWE supports wind collection task force

July 16, 2009 Recognizing that collaboration is key to ensuring wise development of much-needed transmission lines in Wyoming, TransWest Express LLC is participating in the Wyoming Wind Collector and Transmission Task Force, created in June. Organized by the Western Area Power Administration, the task force brings together transmission line developers to create one coordinated system for collecting renewable electricity from sources around the state. The electric power can then be exported via intrastate transmission lines to various market centers in the Western U.S. In particular, the TransWest Express Transmission Project is designed to carry 3,000 MW of electricity from south-central Wyoming to the Desert Southwest region of Arizona, Nevada and Southern California, with construction anticipated to begin in 2012.
