Plains and Eastern Clean Line LLC and its affiliate Plains and Eastern Clean Line Oklahoma LLC have commenced an open solicitation process for capacity on the Plains & Eastern Clean Line transmission project.

The Plains & Eastern Clean Line is a 700-mile, overhead 600 kV HVDC transmission line that will be capable of delivering 3.5 GW of power from western Oklahoma to Shelby County, Tenn. The developer says the Oklahoma Panhandle region boasts some of the U.S.’ richest wind resources, and the project is designed to connect these strong wind resources to communities in Arkansas, Tennessee and other areas in the Mid-South and Southeast.

Plains and Eastern says the project is currently under development and, based on current estimates, is expected to achieve commercial operation at the end of 2018. The developer intends to allocate up to 100% of the project’s capacity to customers through an open and transparent capacity allocation process.
