Grain Belt Express Clean Line LLC, an affiliate of Houston-based Clean Line Energy Partners, has issued a request for information (RFI) to wind generators in Kansas.

The RFI will gather information about the generators' demand for transmission capacity. According to Clean Line, data collected will allow the company to better understand the cost-effectiveness and production potential of the wind resource in western Kansas.

The Grain Belt Express Clean Line is a 750-mile, overhead, direct-current transmission line designed to deliver up to 3.5 GW of clean generation from western Kansas to utilities and customers in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and states farther east that have a strong demand for renewable energy, Clean Line says.

Interested generators must supply a notice of intent to respond by Dec. 2 and submit their final RFI responses by Jan. 13. More information is available at grainbeltexpresscleanline.com.
