Lone Star Transmission LLC, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Inc., has energized approximately 330 miles of new 345 kV transmission lines and associated transmission facilities. The project runs from Scurry County, northwest of Abilene, Texas, to Navarro County, south of Dallas. Four circuits and five substations are a part of the new infrastructure.

Lone Star's transmission lines are contributing to the state's transmission grid improvement program, which will see the addition of approximately 2,300 miles of 345 kV lines designed to deliver renewable energy from the Competitive Renewable Energy Zones (CREZ) in West Texas and the Texas Panhandle to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and other population centers. Lone Star says it is the first new transmission utility to energize its CREZ facilities.
