Hoskins-Neligh

Project Status:

Construction of the new 345k and 115kV transmission lines have been completed.  Restoration work continues.  Right-of-Way Agent Todd Muehlich is in the process of settling damages  that may have occurred during construction.  Landowners and tenants may contact Todd at (402) 612-5882 if they have any questions.

NPPD would like to thank the landowners, tenants and the public for their cooperation throughout the entire project.

Project Overview:

NPPD is constructing a 345,000-volt transmission line from NPPD’s Hoskins substation located southwest of Hoskins, Neb. to a new substation in the Neligh area. In addition, four 115,000-volt transmission line segments are currently being built from the new substation to existing lines.

This new transmission 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 used a comprehensive public involvement process during the siting of the transmission line. Three rounds of public open house meetings were held, followed by four public hearings. Public input was encouraged throughout the entire process.

During this project, NPPD met with area landowners; local, county and state government officials; and representatives of the appropriate regulatory agencies within the respective project area and communities.
