A group of Texas transmission providers have filed a proposal with the Public Utility Commission of Texas to build approximately 2,400 miles of 345 kV transmission lines and associated electrical substations as part of the state's competitive renewable energy zone (CREZ) process.

Members of the group include Electric Transmission Texas LLC (ETT), LCRA Transmission Services Corp. (LCRA TSC), Oncor Electric Delivery, Sharyland Utilities, South Texas Electric Coop. and Texas-New Mexico Power Co. The original group, consisting of ETT, LCRA TSC, Oncor and Sharyland, filed its initial statement of intent in July.

The joint proposal outlines in detail the transmission facilities that each member of the transmission group will develop in order to bring wind power from west Texas to load centers throughout the state. While each transmission provider will assume responsibility for permitting, construction, operation and maintenance of its proposed facilities, the group says it will coordinate all aspects of the overall CREZ project with the Electric Reliability Council of Texas during implementation.
