SARATOGA – TransWest Express Transmission Project was approved at the Wyoming Industrial Siting Council meeting in Saratoga on Friday. This project has been in the works since 2007.

This $3 billion project will build a 500kV electrical transmission line 730 miles, from just west of Sinclair Wyoming to the Marketplace Hub near Boulder City, Nevada, crossing four states in the process. This new line will have the capacity to provide enough power to light 1.8 million homes.
