RENO, Nev. –The Bureau of Land Management, Nevada State Office, invites the public to two virtual public workshops on the proposed Greenlink West Project that would be constructed and operated by Nevada Power Company and Sierra Pacific Power Company (doing business as NV Energy).

The Greenlink West Project would be a system of new 525-kilovolt (kV), 345-kV, 230-kV, and 120-kV electric transmission facilities on private, state, and federal lands between northern and southern Nevada. The BLM will be preparing an Environmental Impact Statement for the right-of-way application submitted by NV Energy for the Greenlink West Project. The public workshops will be held virtually on February 23rd and 24th, 2022.

“These workshops are part of the pre-planning phase that included a series of workshops held in June and November last year,” said BLM project manager Greg Helseth. “We hope that by providing information to the public in advance of publishing the Notice of Intent for the EIS in Spring 2022, people are able to identify issues, ask questions, and gather information that will aid in providing substantive comments during the formal public scoping periods. After the Notice of Intent is published, there will be more opportunities for public involvement in the planning process, including public scoping and review and comment periods on the Environmental Impact Statement.”

The February Public Workshop information is as follows and the same information will be presented on both days.

Wednesday, February 23, 2022 from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. and Thursday, February 24 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm.
