Verde Transmission Project

The Verde Transmission Project (Project) proposes to build approximately 30 miles of 345 kilovolt ("kV") transmission line that will interconnect the existing Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) Ojo substation in southern Rio Arriba County to the existing PNM Norton substation in Santa Fe County, New Mexico. The Project is intended to complete a critical transmission loop in the Northern New Mexico transmission system. The Project will strengthen import and export capabilities system-wide, help relieve congestion, strengthen the reliability of the existing electrical system, and improve transmission access for local renewable and other energy sources.
