The One Nevada Transmission Line (ON Line) is now operational and transmitting up to 600 MW of electricity, including energy from renewable resources throughout Nevada.

The 231-mile line integrates Nevada's grids and is viewed as the transmission backbone that brings renewable energy from northern Nevada to the major load areas, including Las Vegas. ON Line is carrying renewable energy from seven geothermal projects, two solar projects, one large wind farm and a small landfill gas-to-energy project.

ON Line was developed by LS Power Associates. NV Energy provided construction services and serves as operator and purchaser of the line’s transmission capacity. In 2011, the U.S. Department of Energy's Loan Programs Office (LPO) provided a $343 million loan guarantee for the project.

"Through a successful public-private partnership, the One Nevada Transmission Line is an important step in our efforts to modernize the nation’s transmission infrastructure and increase the safety, reliability and security of our electricity grid as we move toward a clean, low-carbon future,” says Peter Davidson, executive director of the LPO.
