Centennial West Clean Line is committed to building relationships with businesses, civic organizations, conservation groups and trade associations across our project area.
Western Area Power Authority
On June 18, Centennial West Clean Line reached an important milestone by signing an agreement with the Western Area Power Administration (Western) to formalize roles and responsibilities for the project’s National Environmental Policy Act review process. The agreement also lays the groundwork for Centennial West and Western to further the development of the project as part of Western’s Transmission Infrastructure Program. We are excited to continue our joint efforts with Western as Centennial West moves forward. This collaboration demonstrates the benefit of private and government entities working together to build new clean energy projects, create American jobs and give consumers in the West low-cost renewable energy options without spending federal dollars or incurring risk to Western's customers.

The Sonoran Institute, a non-profit organization that is working to shape the future of the West, recently wrote a case study about the Centennial West Clean Line on their PowerLine site—a database of innovation in transmission planning and design. The case study highlights the benefits of a HVDC transmission line to move renewable energy from New Mexico to California. The Sonoran Institute inspires and enables community decisions and public policies that respect the land and people of western North America.
