Segment C - Oquirrh to Terminal
Within the overall Energy Gateway expansion area, Northern Utah represents the fastest growing area in Utah and one of the major growth areas within the region. New transmission lines and substations are necessary to provide additional capacity to serve the growing electrical demand of customers and to improve reliability and operational flexibility of the electrical system. These additional transmission facilities are also needed to prepare for future generation resources.
Our company is committed to providing safe, reliable, cost-effective power and has proposed a project to establish a new high-voltage transmission line connecting two substations in the Salt Lake area. The line will be located in an existing high-voltage transmission line corridor. It will run between the Oquirrh substation, near 10200 South and 5600 West in West Jordan, north to the Terminal substation, located south of the Salt Lake City international airport. This section of new transmission will link together other new transmission sections – Mona to Oquirrh and Populus to Terminal, to complete the Gateway Central portion of the Energy Gateway Transmission Expansion. Completion of the project will be determined by customer need with a current projection of that need in 2021, if the timing of the need changes the project schedule will be adjusted to meet the need.
