BLYTHE ENERGY PROJECT PHASE II
TRANSMISSION PROJECT, CA, DOE/EA-1522
Blythe Energy, LLC, proposes to build two new transmission lines in the vicinity of its 520-MW Blythe Powerplant, west of the city of Blythe, Calif.
The proposed transmission line project will increase the capability of the transmission paths between the Blythe Powerplant and the transmission system serving Southern California electric load centers. Presently, there is not enough available transmission to allow the powerplant’s full output to reach these load centers.
The proposed project consists approximately 74 miles of new 230-kV transmission line on concrete poles.
