A 345 kV TRANSMISSION LINE PROJECT

About the Project

The Sam Switch to Hubbard Wind Transmission Line Project is a new, approximately 15.3-mile-long, 345 kilovolt (kV) transmission line in Hill County, Texas.  The new transmission line will connect renewable energy generated at the 300 megawatt Hubbard Wind Energy Center* to the Texas electric grid via Lone Star’s 345 kV Sam Switch Station, making that power available to electric consumers around the state.  

This project is being built by Lone Star Transmission, LLC, an experienced transmission service provider and a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Transmission, LLC.
