NPPD Schedules Public Hearings on R-Project Transmission Line

October 23, 2014 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

A series of eight public hearings on Nebraska Public Power District’s R-Project 345,000-Volt Transmission Line are scheduled to be held during the first two weeks of November. The hearings will be held in eight counties where the line route has been selected, with each meeting having a one-hour open house prior to the formal hearing.
NPPD plans to construct approximately 220 miles of transmission line from the District’s Gerald Gentleman Station, south of Sutherland, to a new substation to be constructed in Holt County. Besides the new substation in Holt County, a new substation will also be built at a location near Thedford. NPPD has not determined a final line route for the project.
This new transmission line will help enhance operation of NPPD’s electric transmission system, relieve congestion from existing lines within the transmission system, and provide additional opportunities for development of renewable energy projects.

Tuesday, November 4 – Logan County Fairgrounds, 71 Highway 83, Stapleton; open house from noon to 1 p.m.; public hearing from 1 to 3 p.m.
