Stegall to Scottsbluff

Project Status:

Easement acquisition began in September. Right-of-way agents are in the process of contacting landowners to discuss and acquire easements for the electric transmission line. Two right-of-way agents support the project. The agents’ office is located in the NPPD Scottsbluff office at 515 1st Avenue and they are available by calling their cell phone numbers.

Project Overview:

The project consists of constructing a 115,000-volt electric transmission line approximately 23 miles from the existing Scottsbluff Substation to a new NPPD substation to be built approximately five miles south of Stegall near the existing Stegall Substation owned by Basin Electric Power Cooperative. There will also be a short 345,000 volt transmission line built between NPPD’s new substation and Basin’s existing Stegall substation.

The approximate 23-mile transmission line will enhance transmission system reliability in the western Nebraska Panhandle region. The new line will also meet the North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s Reliability Standards for the western Nebraska area. The line is expected to be in service by mid-2017.


Public Involvement Process:

NPPD used a comprehensive public involvement process during the siting of this transmission line. Three rounds of public open house meetings were held, followed by a public hearing in January 2015. 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.
