This Project was approved by the SSEA Board on May 20, 2014

The Project Members intend to jointly explore, research, investigate, review, and evaluate the feasibility of constructing high voltage electrical transmission lines and related facilities to allow the interconnection of the member electrical systems with Mead Substation in southern Nevada. The Project provides for the construction of new facilities, which include a 230 kV transmission line from the existing Newport Substation extending north to a future planned 230 kV transmission line beginning in the Apex valley area and extending north to the planned Gemmill Substation near the intersection of U.S. Highway 93 and State Route 168; a 230 kV transmission line originating at the planned Gemmill Substation and extending east to the existing Tortoise Substation near Moapa, Nevada; and other facilities as may be designed to meet the power demands of the members and to interconnect future generation sources. Work performed under this agreement includes siting, permitting, and preliminary design of the proposed transmission lines.

The project term is from July 17, 2014 through July 17, 2019 unless terminated earlier by the Project Members
