Minco-Pleasant Valley-Draper Project, US [free access]

May 3, 2022

Developer: NextEra Energy Transmission, LLC, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy, Inc.


Project details and status: The project consists of an approximately 48-mile (76.8 km), 345 kV transmission line that will connect the Minco and Draper substations in Oklahoma to address economic needs in the region.


In April 2022, the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) Board of Directors approved an industry expert panel (IEP) recommendation to award the project to NextEra Energy Transmission, LLC. The IEP evaluated this project through its competitive transmission owner selection process, which is required under the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (FERC’s) Order No. 1000 for certain transmission projects.


The project is expected to be online in 2024.
