Proposed Tule Springs Transmission Corridor

Transmission Corridor Report (1.21 MB)

This report was prepared in response to NV Energy’s request to locate a transmission corridor in an area known alternately as Tule Springs and the Upper Las Vegas Wash, in an area proposed to be a national monument managed by the National Park Service.

It summarizes the viability of transmission options, risks to Nevada ratepayers, and the economics of building a transmission corridor in contrast to building an urban national park unit that fosters tourism and economic development and enhances overall community qualities in Southern Nevada.
