NEAC Transmission Routing Project


Current Nevada transmission infrastructure is almost fully utilized by generators in and outside of Nevada to export or transmit resources out of and through the state. Limitations of this transmission system hinder renewable energy exportation. In an effort to address this, a DOE grant was awarded to the State of Nevada to establish new line routes into the California Grid. US Geomatics worked with Tri Sage Consulting, Energy Source, the Nevada Energy Assistance Corporation, and the Nevada State Office of Energy to complete a comprehensive routing study of alternative lines to support export of renewable energy power. The result was three export paths, to the north, east and south of Nevada; holding the potential to enhancing new transmission export paths into the neighboring states and ultimately addressing multiple export and grid enhancement needs.
