On 4/18/17, Electric Light & Power reported that “Xcel Energy has started construction on a 345-kV transmission line between Texas and New Mexico to extend its electrical distribution system. Formal ground-breaking ceremonies were scheduled Tuesday near Hobbs, New Mexico, on the $400 million project to eventually connect to a substation north of Abernathy, Texas. An Xcel statement says the first segment will involve a substation southeast of Carlsbad, New Mexico. The new transmission line should run about 240 miles and be in service by 2018. A similar Xcel project was completed in 2014, connecting the Texas substation to a unit near Woodward, Oklahoma. When all the segments are completed by 2020, the power line is expected to stretch more than 400 miles from western Oklahoma to southeastern New Mexico.”
