Transmission Lines Approved To Guymon
06/24/2010
 

$1.1 billion has been approved by federal regulators for transmission projects in Oklahoma and surrounding states, including a line between Woodward and Guymon.

Oklahoma's two largest electric companies will split the cost of the two high voltage projects while local power companies will pay for the lower voltage projects.

The projects are part of a six-project priority list that was approved by the Southwest Power Pool back in April that spreads out the burden of significantly upgrading the region's power grid.

Oklahoma will get about $500 million in high voltage power lines. Included are two that make it easier for power companies to tap into western Oklahoma's wind power.

One of those projects is a planned $247 million line between Woodward and Guymon. Officials say that it will be a huge boom to wind development in the area. The other project will link Woodward to new transmission lines in Kansas.
