Idaho-to-Vegas power line moving ahead

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - A developer says it has reached a tentative agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy to develop a major transmission line from southern Idaho through eastern Nevada and to Las Vegas.

LS Power announced that it and the DOE's Western Area Power Administration are moving forward on an "evaluation and consideration of a potential partnership" to develop the Southwest Intertie Project, which would travel 500 miles.

LS Power says it plans to start construction later this year and could deliver up to two gigawatts of renewable energy to the grid.
