A high-voltage transmission line that could transport 3,000 megawatts of Wyoming wind power to Nevada will cut through about 150 miles of southeastern Wyoming, according to a proposal announced Wednesday.
Duke-American Transmission Co., a Charlotte, N.C.-based partnership between Duke Energy and American Transmission Co., announced in a release that they intend to site their line, called the Zephyr Power Transmission Project, along a course that starts at a converter station south of Chugwater, follows Interstate 80 west and then cuts straight south just west of Rawlins. The line would then cross northwest Colorado and central Utah before terminating in southern Nevada.
