Description: The TransWest Express Transmission Project is an extra-high-voltage direct-current electric transmission system. The general route will begin in south-central Wyoming, extend through northwestern Colorado and central Utah, turn southwest into southern Nevada, and end near Las Vegas. The TWE Project will reliably and cost-effectively deliver renewable energy produced in Wyoming to the Desert Southwest region (Arizona, California, Nevada), ultimately helping contribute to a cleaner, greener world while providing much-needed electricity to thousands of homes and businesses every year. Under development since 2005, the transmission line is anticipated to begin construction in 2013.
