Upgraded Power Lines Will Help Deliver Wind Power to More Customers

Western utilities hungry for new power sources are exploring new or upgraded transmission lines, a trend that could benefit the growth of wind power in the region. Trans-Elect, Inc., the Western Area Power Administration, and the Wyoming Infrastructure Authority joined forces in late September to upgrade a transmission line that crosses the border between northeastern Colorado and eastern Wyoming. The American Wind Energy Association supports the project because it will help deliver Colorado and Wyoming wind power to customers along Colorado's urban Front Range.
