Antelope valley station to neset transmission project (2014)

The Antelope Valley Station to Neset Transmission (AVS) Project was proposed by Basin ​Electric Power Cooperative (Basin Electric).  ​Basin Electric requested financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Rural Utilities Service (RUS) ​​​​to construct the project. RUS determined that its decision about whether to finance the project would constitute a major federal action that may have a significant impact on the environment, within the context of NEPA. RUS served as the lead federal agency for the NEPA environmental review of the project; WAPA and the U.S. Forest Service participated as cooperating agencies.
