Proposed Action

The Project is being constructed as part of the Applicant’s Energy GatewayProgram for transmission expansion. The Project includes the following: -Construction, operation, and maintenance of a 500kV single-circuit, AC transmission line from the Aeolus Substation near Medicine Bow in Carbon County, Wyoming to the Clover Substation near Mona in Juab County, Utah, a distance of 400 to 540 miles depending on the route selected -Two series compensation stations, at points between the Aeolus and Clover substations, to improve the transport capacity and efficiency of the transmission line -Communication regeneration stations (every 55 miles) -Rebuild two existing 345kV transmission lines between the Clover and Mona Substations (in existing right-of-way) -Reroute the Mona to Huntington 345kV transmission line through the Clover Substation

Conditions of Approval

Final EIS not yet released; no ROD issued.
