It is the first phase of the Southwest Intertie Project, which will carry 2GW of electricity and connect wind resources in Wyoming and Idaho, to southern California.

The project is owned by utility NV Energy and transmission company LS Power. This is the Department of Energy’s first loan guarantee for a transmission project.
