Landowner comments from the February open houses have been consolidated and reviewed.
Third round of open houses are scheduled for May 14th in Neligh and May 15th in Norfolk.
NPPD plans to construct a 345,000-volt transmission line from NPPD’s Hoskins substation located southwest of Hoskins, Neb. to a new substation (location to be determined) in the Neligh area. In addition, four 115,000-volt transmission line segments will be routed from the new substation to existing lines.
The approximately 50-mile-long Hoskins-Neligh line will enhance operation of NPPD’s electric transmission system and provide additional opportunities for development of renewable energy projects. Specifically, this project will help serve customers’ electricity demands in north central Nebraska.
Public Involvement Process:
NPPD uses a comprehensive public involvement process when siting transmission lines. The Study Area Open Houses are the first of several public meetings NPPD will hold to help determine a final line route.
During this project, NPPD will meet with area landowners; local, county and state government officials; and representatives of the appropriate regulatory agencies within the respective project area and communities.
NPPD will use a variety of communication methods to obtain comments and other valuable information needed for the route-siting/decision-making process.
