The project was built to accommodate several large wind projects that have requested interconnection with the BPA system. The project will enable 800MW of additional power to flow from areas east of the Cascade Mountains to heavily populated areas in the west. The project is affiliated with the ARRA Act of 2009. Construction began in May of 2014 and was completed late 2015.
