New transmission tower off of I-20

Shown is one of the new transmission towers being installed at the east entrance to Sweetwater off of I-20. This is part of the Texas Public Utility Commission's (PUC) $5 billion transmission line expansion to move West Texas wind power toward North Texas and Houston. These lines and routes were established as part of the Competitive Renewable Energy Zone (CREZ). Oncor was one of the successful bidders to build the lines. Of the $5 billion dollar project, Oncor received $1.34 billion for their part of the construction and installation of the new transmission lines.
