BLM to host virtual public workshops for Greenlink West Project November 17-18

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 (dba 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. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the public workshops will be held virtually on November 17 and 18. 

The November workshops are part of the pre-planning phase that also included a series of workshops held in June 2021. By providing information to the public in advance of publishing the Notice of Intent for the Environmental Impact Statement for the project in Spring 2022, the BLM hopes to help the public 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 EIS. 

The dates, times, and how to join the public input workshops are provided below. The same project information will be presented on both days.

Wednesday, November 17 from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. PST and Thursday, November 18 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm PST
