Power system clears hurdle

SAN JUAN COUNTY, NEW MEXICO - An electrical system that officials say would prevent power outages in western San Juan County in northwestern New Mexico will be finished in December.

City officials approved the purchase of almost $900,000 in power lines as part of the $5 million project.

The power lines are one of the final phases of the project and will run almost 13 miles from Hogback to just west of Farmington.

In addition to power lines, the project included the construction of two electric stations, one in Hogback and another near New Mexico State Route 170.

Officials say the power lines are capable of transmitting 200 megawatts, or enough power to serve the city of Farmington on any given summer day when people are using the most electricity.
