Cross-Tie Transmission Line

The Cross-Tie Transmission Line is a proposed 500-kilovolt (kV) line connecting Utah and Nevada. The approximately 214-mile line would go into service in 2027.

The line would increase transmission capacity, improve reliability, enhance flexibility and provide more access to a wider pool of renewable energy across the region.

This project would strengthen the transmission system between Utah and Nevada, relieve congestion on other key transmission lines in the region, and increase the ability for California, Nevada, Utah and Wyoming to import and export renewable energy.

TransCanyon will develop, own and operate the project's transmission facilities.
