Document Description
PacifiCorp proposes to upgrade an existing 69kV transmission line (Line 1) with a new 115kV transmission line within existing right-of-way from Pole 15/44 to Pole 19/45 and to install 1.7 miles of new 115kV transmission line together with an existing 69 kV line within existing right-of-way from Pole 19/45 east to the Weed Junction Substation. The Weed Segment would include a rebuild of the Weed Substation from 69kV to 115kV and upgrade of approximately 1.5 miles of single-circuit 69kV transmission line to a double-circuit 115kV line.
