Four Corners Wind Resource Center Webinar: Repurposing Navajo Generating Station Transmission: Potential for Wind and Solar Development

Four Corners Wind Resource Center Webinar: Repurposing Navajo Generating Station Transmission: Potential for Wind and Solar Development

Date: 4/25/2017

12 p.m. ET
The utility owners of the Navajo Generating Station have proposed closing the 2,250-megawatt power plant in the next few years. The Navajo Generating Station is located in the northeast corner of Arizona on the Navajo Nation in the sparsely populated Four Corners region. There are significant high-voltage transmission connections between the power plant and Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. The closure of the plant creates attractive opportunities to re-purpose the transmission to transmit energy from neighboring states and/or to support regional wind and solar resource development.

This webinar will present high-level information on the ownership of existing transmission and transmission rights in the region and opportunities for new wind and solar development to reach Western energy markets.

The webinar is free, but registration is required.
