Hitchland to Ochiltree

Hitchland to Ochiltree is a 230-kV transmission line, originating at Hitchland, Texas, and terminating at Ochiltree County Substation, Texas. The project, proposed by Xcel Energy subsidiary Southwestern Public Service, cost $28 m. The line will help serve load growth in the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandle areas. The line runs 38 miles between the existing Hitchland Substation located in the north central Texas Panhandle region and the Ochiltree County Substation near Perryton, Texas. The existing 115 kV lines between Perryton, Cole and Texas Farms substations was reconfigured and routed through the new Ochiltree County Substation. The 230 kV line provides a stronger transmission source to the Perryton area and improves reliability on the existing 115 kV transmission system. Construction begin in 2012 and was completed first quarter 2013.
