About the project
Sustainable clean energy
Ten West Link is a planned energy infrastructure project that will connect electrical substations in Tonopah, Arizona and Blythe, California. The new 500kV power line will improve transmission system efficiency and reliability while facilitating the development of new renewable energy and energy storage resources in Arizona and California. This will help both states achieve their renewable energy standards and carbon reduction goals.
Ten West Link will also bring significant economic, reliability and public policy benefits to the electric power grid serving the Desert Southwest – one of America’s fastest-growing regions. The project spans 125 miles, and uses the U.S. Department of Energy’s “Energy Corridor” and U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s-designated utility corridors. Additionally, the project avoids the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge and all major population centers. The project is expected to be operational by the end of 2023.
