RAWLINS, Wyo. – The Bureau of Land Management today authorized a 230 kilovolt transmission line project—also known as a gen-tie line—to cross approximately 4.7 miles of public lands and connect the Rock Creek Wind Facility, which is expected to generate 590 MW of clean energy, to the Wyoming electric grid.

Rock Creek Wind LLC proposed to construct, operate, maintain, and eventually decommission the 38-mile transmission project that will cross a mix of public and private lands in Albany and Carbon counties. The BLM’s decision follows a 30-day public comment period, during which the Bureau gathered public input on two options considered for this project before authorizing the project right-of-way. Documents associated with this project, including information on the BLM’s decision, are available at the BLM National NEPA Register.
