In 2022, through a Federal Register notice, WAPA’s Desert Southwest region and TIP sought statements of interest that proposed collaboration opportunities to construct new transmission facilities or upgrade existing facilities owned by WAPA around Boulder City, Nevada, and the nearby Mead Substation energy trading hub. Secondarily, it targeted potential agreements taking transmission service from or interconnecting to the newly constructed or upgraded transmission facilities. WAPA continues to explore the proposals and other opportunities for expansion of Mead Substation and the surrounding infrastructure, including energy storage as transmission and other innovative approaches.
