LCRA plans Leander–Round Rock line route through Round Rock and Leander Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) is planning to pass Leander–Round Rock Transmission Line through west Round Rock and east Leander, and is thus encouraging local residents to participate in the route selection process of the project. Under the project, LCRA has proposed to build a new 138 kV transmission line in south- western Williamson County. The project consists of a 12.6 mile (20.3 km) line to connect the new Parmer substation to the existing Leander and Round Rock substations, construction of the 138 kV Parmer substation, addition of terminal equipment at the Leander and Round Rock substations for the new transmission line, and upgradation of the 138 kV bus at the Leander substation. The Electricity Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) is supporting the project. The developer is likely to present its route recommendation for the project in 2016. BLM seeks comments on EA of King to Wood River 138 kV transmission line rebuild project The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has announced the availability of the environment assessment (EA) report of the King to Wood River 138 kV transmission line rebuild project for public comments. The Bureau will seek comments till January 19, 2016. The North Valley project has been proposed by Idaho Power, from Hailey to Ketchum under its Wood River Electrical Plan 2007. Under this, the company has planned to construct a 12 mile (19.32 km), 138 kV power line between Wood River Transmission station and Ketchum substation to improve the reliability to the north end of the Valley. The new line would run in place of existing overhead distribution power lines along Buttercup Road and the highway. It will provide a backup when the existing power line fails due to weather or technical problems. Xcel Energy energises two 115 kV transmission projects under Power for the Plains initiative Xcel Energy has energised two 115 kV projects under its USD1.6 billion-worth Power for the Plains initiative, which aims to strengthen the power network of Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. The Battle Axe–Roadrunner 115 kV transmission line project has been completed with an estimated cost of about USD14 million in New Mexico. Under this, Xcel Energy has energised approximately 19 miles (30.59 km) of 115 kV transmission line between the Roadrunner substation located about 45 miles (72.45 km) southeast of Carlsbad to the new Battle Axe substation located about 38 miles (61.18 km) southeast of Carlsbad. The project also included the construction of the Battle Axe substation. Xcel Energy has also energised the Ochiltree–Cole 115 kV project

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
