The El Campo Wind project is located in Knox County, Texas, on ETT’s Edith Clarke to Clear Crossing 345kV transmission line. This project involves construction of the new 345kV Coulomb station and a new gen-tie transmission line to interconnect a 220MW wind farm.
On January 7, 2019, ETT filed an amendment to its Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (“CCN”) at the PUCT for the construction of the new transmission line. On March 27, 2019, the PUCT issued a final order approving this application. This new line will be constructed as a 3.8-mile single-circuit 345kV line starting from the existing ETT Coulomb 345kV switch station to the wind farm’s Vera Wind substation. The projected in-service date for this project is April 2020.
