Project Overview:

NPPD plans to construct a 345,000-volt transmission line from NPPD’s Gerald Gentleman Station near Sutherland to a new substation to be sited adjacent to NPPD’s existing substation east of Thedford. The new line will then proceed east and connect to a second substation to be sited in the Holt/Antelope/Wheeler County area.

Referred to as the R-Project, the approximately 220-mile-long line will help enhance operation of NPPD’s electric transmission system, relieve congestion from existing lines within the transmission system, and provide additional opportunities for development of renewable energy projects

Public Involvement Process:

NPPD uses a comprehensive public involvement process when siting transmission lines. Typically, three rounds of public open house meetings are held, followed by a public hearing. Public input is encouraged throughout the entire process.

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.
