Silverton to Tesla

The Silverton to Tesla project consist of two 345 kilovolt circuits constructed on common structures beginning at the Silverton Substation a few miles Southwest of Silverton, TX in Briscoe County and ending at the Tesla Substation located just west of Kirkland, TX in Childress County. Both 345 KV circuits interconnect into the Tesla Substation. The project allows for the delivery of wind energy and possibly other generation from the Panhandle CREZ Zone A to homes and businesses throughout Texas that rely on the ERCOT transmission system to supply their power. This line is a necessary part of the CREZ Transmission Line system as there is inadequate transmission capacity currently available in this area of Texas to deliver high quality wind generated power and other forms of generation to key markets throughout the state. The project was put into service mid-September 2013.
