Clean Line Energy Partners (CLEP) is planning to undertake the CWCL project in southern California, the US. The final route has not yet been determined.
The project involves the construction of 1,448km, 600-kV high voltage transmission line which will be able to deliver 3,500MW of renewable energy. The project will include the construction of an intermediate converter station, substations, transmission stations and other related infrastructural facilities, the laying of electric line, and the installation of electric feeder systems.
The development project is expected to take around seven years to be completed which includes five years for securing all necessary approvals from various regulatory authorities for the implementation and two years for the construction of transmission line.
In fourth quarter of 2010, POWER Engineers Inc was awarded a contract to perform environmental planning and regulatory compliance consulting services for the CWCL.
In January 2011, CLEP has submitted an application for right-of-way across Federal lands and a preliminary Plan of Development to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). This is the first step towards completion of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA).
On June 18, 2012 CLEP and Western Area Power Administration entered into an agreement that outlines a working relationship to advance the development.
On February 20, 2015, case study review process held.
Subject to approvals, construction activities are scheduled to commence in 2020.
