Centennial West Clean Line

Centennial West Clean Line is a 900-mile, 600-kV transmission line that originates at Guadalupe, New Mexico, and terminates at Mira Loma, Calif. The project is sponsored by Clean Line Energy Partners LLC. In June of 2012, Clean Line entered into an advanced funding agreement with the Western Area Power Administration.  The line will deliver 3,500 MW of the best renewable energy from northeastern New Mexico to communities in California and other areas in the west that have a strong demand for clean, reliable energy. The Centennial West Clean Line is estimated to provide more than 5,000 construction jobs and more than 500 permanent jobs to maintain and operate the wind farms and the transmission line. The project will make possible more than $7 billion of new renewable energy investments.
