    West Camp Wind Farm Gen-Tie Transmission Line Plans

    Gen-tie transmission lines deliver clean energy from wind and solar resources to residential and commercial utility customers via the power grid. The West Camp Wind Farm in Northern Arizona will connect, via a gen-tie line, to existing transmission infrastructure associated with the Cholla Power Plant, which is scheduled to be decommissioned in the coming years.

    Currently, AES is assessing several gen-tie line options to connect to the Arizona Public Service transmission system to determine the optimum approach for the West Camp Wind Farm. Visual simulations, cultural resource investigations, natural resource and wildlife studies and other siting evaluations are essential for identifying and mitigating impacts on applicable resources in Navajo County.

    AES will locate the on-site substations and potential on-site switchyard infrastructure within the wind farm project site, all on private property in Navajo County. The specific locations for the gen-tie line corridors will be determined after additional electrical engineering and design studies. The West Camp Wind gen-tie line will be constructed entirely on private land in unincorporated portions of Navajo County, Arizona.
